    Norm and I were sad to hear of Dad Hale’s passing. Although Norm only met him once at Niki’s graduation I have many, many wonderful memories of him that include his quick sense of humor. The one that stands out in my mind – Gary and I lived with you in Bowie and Dad Hale knew I was really scared of thunder storms and lightning. One evening I was in the bathroom next to the TV room and there was a storm outside. I just knew lightning was going to come through the house and zap me. All of a sudden it sounded like a bolt of lightning hit the bathroom and I screamed. When things settled down all I could hear was Dad Hale laughing hysterically. He had thrown a shoe at the door and waited to hear the chaos that followed! He got me good. He was a rascal, but one of the kindest rascals I’ve ever known. He will definitely be missed.

    Connie and family:
    Jim and I are deeply saddened by your loss. We remember when we were looking for a place to live in Ocala and stopped at your home to inquire about Cherrywood. You and Lee were so loving and made us feel right at home that we decided that we had to move here and you helped us make the right decision. We remember the bowling with you both and other activities and Lee will be sorely missed. May the Lord help you in the healing and make the loss of Lee a little easier in your life.
    Love Jim and Joan Whidden
