Everyone I've talked with felt like the service Saturday for Dale Willman was among the best they had experienced! The fact that Dale wrote the music was one thing, but that he asked his sons to play their trumpets was another! He selected the verses that were read from the Bible that were very meaningful. Ed did a tremendous job playing and when he couldn't sing the "I believe" many of us filled in and sang along with that wonderful song.
There were so many flowers including the yellow roses that Chris said they had at their wedding. By the time you read this, we will have laid Dale to rest at the cemetery. I think that term "laid to rest" is so fitting. Dale, now at rest, resides in Heaven with his Heavenly Father forever and ever. And all God's people said, Amen!
P.S. Thanks and praise to Jan and the fellowship team that put all the food together. An estimated count was over 100 people were fed! Many worked behind the scenes to make the service and the meal happen, all to the glory of God. It's what we do as St. Andrew’s Lutheran church.
