Dear Family, long lost cousins from Florida. But when we were younger I remembered the reunions where we all got acquainted and had fun. Those are fading away,the good old days. Gladys was my grandmas sister. Her name Bernice. Remember. The good times. Your parents good people. Life seems short so be happy.

I know that Dale is with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I would like to tell his family how much he was loved and admired. I grieve with them in his passing, but I know that I will see him soon. I know that his belief in Jesus Christ was his ticket to heaven and like him, my belief in Jesus; that he died, was put in a tomb and three days later arose from the dead. Anyone that believes in their heart that this is true, knows the gospel, by which we are SAVED!! Hallelujah and Amen.
