“Dear Sharon and Rod, So sorry I did not know until today that Dale had passed on. When he called to tell me of his problems he said he would let me know where he was and a phone number. I hope you will send me yours. I dont want to lose track of the only family I have left. I always enjoyed talking to him and will certainly miss him, Sorry I couldnt be there with you. I am not getting around very well. My knee surgery was cancelled, and I have hardly been out of the house since Covid struck. I hope this finds you in good health. Take tonight off of thinking of him, I will fill in for you.”
