Through the years of being neighbors I have enjoyed the peaceful beauty of the contoured rows and manicured waterways on Dale's farm. What a wonderful caretaker of the land he was! We will miss knowing that he is the one doing the farming, but know he left it in capable hands of his family. We send our sympathy. May God bless you all.

As a former Beverly-ite, I would like to give my condolences to your family. My Mom, Dorothy Thompson was a Bible school teacher and enjoyed summers with the kids of Beverly. I believe at least one of the Loos kids was in one of her classes in the late 60s.
