    Dale Thompson update....It's over.

    This from John at SMC in case you haven't heard.

    "Received this note from Dale's daughter early this morning:

    Hi Friends,

    It is bitter sweet that I must write you with this news … but my dad has left us to be with Jesus. He passed away late yesterday afternoon following his 10-month battle with lung cancer. My mom was at his side as he peacefully passed which is such an answer to prayer. The funeral will take place in Peshtigo next Saturday (June 2nd), so your prayers for God’s sustaining mercies would be appreciated.

    What a journey this has been, but I’m so thankful to God for His strength, love and peace throughout. Knowing that my dad was at peace with His Savior has allowed us to be in a place of peace also. Eternal peace is truly a precious gift and one I’ve learned not to take for granted in these past days.

    Thank you again for your concern and support. I pray you are blessed for being a blessing to us

    In His Care,
    Stacey

    I was working in the shop today, listening to my favorite radio station just waiting for this song to come on so I would remember who sings it, and go on line and get the lyrics. It fits with the notes that Dale's daughter passed on to John M. Thought I'd share it with you.

    by Mark Harris "Wish You Were Here"

    Thinking of you Pesh.....

    Verse 1

    I wanted to tell you how closely I've kept
    The memories of you in my heart
    And all of the lifetimes that we've had to share
    Live even though we're apart

    But don't cry for me
    'Cause I'm finally free

    To run with the angles
    On streets made of gold
    To listen to stories of saints new and old
    To worship our Maker
    That's where I'll be
    When you finally find me

    Verse 2

    No don't you be weary 'cause waiting for you
    Are wonders that you've never known
    Just hold on to Jesus, reach out for His hands
    And one day they'll welcome you home
    And that's when you'll be
    Finally Free
    Finally Free

    To run with the angles
    On streets made of gold
    To listen to stories of saints new and old
    To worship our Maker
    That's where I'll be
    When you finally find me

    bridge

    And all of the dreams that you treasure
    Will soon come together
    And that's when your sorrow will be tomorrow
    And you will rise again

    To run with the angles
    On streets made of gold
    To listen to stories of saints new and old
    To worship our Maker
    That's where I'll be
    When you finally find me

    We'll run with the angles
    On streets made of gold
    We'll listen to stories of saints new and old
    To worship our Maker
    That's where we'll be
    When you finally find me

    I wish you were here
    I wish you were here



    May the shamrocks fall softly. Jim.

    May God be with them as they adjust.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Godspeed Dale!

    I'm sure Pesh is in a good place now, and I hope the best for his family.

    Thanks for letting us know, Jim.

    Didn't know Dale well except for his presence at the creek, most of the time I wasn't sure how to take his wit (was he serious or pulling our legs?), but whatever...........

    Brings a tear to my eye when we lose a fellow man ........ My heartfelt condolences to his family and close friends.

    Tony.
