Rita I just heard of Dallas's passing. My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of the family. I always enjoyed seeing Dallas in the post office in Nottoway until he retired. He was always pleasant and we had mutual family members.

Even though we hadn't seen each other in years Dallas kept me in the loop on items that were important to me. I always appreciated that. I will always remember his laugh and his love for our country and his strong religious beliefs. This is a great loss for our family and everyone that met him. Rest in peace Cuz
