  6. Peter & Wendy Proudlock :

    Dale was an incredible man; very active in so many masonic bodies where his loss of voice through his stroke was more than made up for in his infectious laugh and willingness to participate. Dale was a great friend and ‘brother’, and the joy he brought will be sorely missed. Our love and prayers to all the family & friends he leaves behind. In the words of the JW’s closing rej-marks “Happy to meet; Sorry to part; Happy to meet again.”

  10. Oh, Mr. Wilson’s passed away. I wish I lived closer. Memories of Sylvan Lake, the Forester dance where we had to stay an extra day, because of the blizzard and Mr. Wilson helped me with my car. Memories also of Christmas times, decorating the tree in the front living room. God bless to the family.
