A couple of days following President and Sister Hale's return home they were given notice that President Hale's mother was in her final hours - the thought was that she had awaited his return. He immediately flew to Arizona and experienced the tender mercy of returning and reporting to his mother his missionary experiences, thanked her, expressed his love to her and extended to her a priesthood blessing of release. She thereafter graduated from this life.
Photographed herein is President and Sister Hale and his siblings at the grave site. His mother, Ethel Mae Hale has now experienced another reunion with her husband, President Hale's father; Steve Hale. The Hales express thanks and appreciation to the many well wishes and condolences in their behalf.
