We lived across the street from Lenora and Dale when they lived in Phoenix. They were the perfect examples of good neighbors and friends. Lenora was kind and always laughed.
To Cindy and Bobby and families we wish you comfort and peace at this difficult time.
My parents, brother and I met Lenora, her husband Dale and kids Cindy and Bob through my brother and father’s involvement in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts back in the ‘50s, so I have known Lenora since I was about 8 years old. Our families remained friends throughout the years, so Lenora will be sorely missed. I will always remember the laughter and fun when Lenora and Dale were around and will also remember the many craft projects she did so well over the years. Lenora and Dale were the epitome of a wonderful marriage so now they can be together again. I’m glad she can now be at peace. Praying also for peace and comfort for Cindy and Bob and the rest of the family as they deal with their loss.
