    So sorry for your loss, I am still in shock. Hugs to you all
    Praying for Peace and comfort
    Psalm 23
    “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.
    He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
    “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

    Dale was a Drumm Farm brother where we grew up together and learned our life values; I will always remember him and miss our talks so long for now and God bless.

    Daddy it’s still hard for me to believe that you are gone. A cardinal has appeared twice at your house. I can’t help but think that it is you. I asked you for a sign. You gave me one. I love and miss you so much. Life will never be the same without you here. Fly high and rest easy.
