We will miss Mr. Hale so much, he was a wonderful neighbor and friend, we will always remember how much he loved listening to his music and how much he loved being outside, whether working or just sitting in the sunshine, our neighborhood will not be the same. God Bless all of you, your dad was very blessed to have children that took such good care of him. We love all of you and continue to keep you in our prayers. Stan & Sue
