I will always remember Mr. Kahle as a strong man who loved his family, God, his country and community very much, and believed in all of those entities strongly and was most dedicated to each. He raised four good children and instilled the love of God, family and country in all his children. His service to his community was of great importance to him–and he gave his utmost effort to that end, always.

I offer my most sincere sympathy to Mrs. Kahle and all the family upon the loss of Mr.Kahle; and my prayers to all of them, that they may find the strength to continue on with their lives at this time of tremendous grief

We were so very sorry to hear of your father’s death. When one’s quality of life falls short of what one would like, passing on sometimes becomes a blessing as he finds his peace. But it never is easy to accept. We were sorry we could not be with you at Mr. Kahle’s services, but our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Lary and Janet
