I am so very sorry for your loss. May the fond memories of the times you shared bring you comfort and peace during this most difficult time. We can look forward to the time when God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever, found at Isaiah 25:8. My deepest sympathy to you all.

Mr. Dale & Ms. Edith welcomed us to OK and took us into their good graces as neighbours in April of 2004. We will never forget how personable they both were. Watching them as time went by, was an example of what the future could be for Mike and I. They were an amazing couple! We met all of their children as time went by, and they all showed the same positive qualities we saw in the parents. Mr. & Mrs. Meyers will be forever in our hearts.
