    Stanley and Family – I’m so sorry to learn of Dale’s death. She was such a lovely and kind person. I know that you remained as devoted to each other as you were on your wedding day when I played the organ for her to walk down the aisle to meet you to begin your life together. May your precious memories sustain each of you.
