Our Memoriam to Dale Rempel


On our arrival in Lisbon. Portugal, we were saddened to be informed that my cousin Lynn’s husband Dale had succumbed to cancer.

Keeping in mind that we are not Catholic, and neither are Dale and Lynn, we decided on an appropriate tribute (we think) in that we were in Spain and Portugal, both of which have a multitude of beautiful cathedrals.  We decided we would light a candle in remembrance in each cathedral we visited.  Our first candle was lit in Lisbon and we now moved into Spain.

Our travels took us to Toledo.

Our next stop was a day trip to Cordoba and the world-famous Mezquita de Cordoba.

  1. Seville is breathtaking. You have to handle it to the Papacy. They are always an exercise in decadence.

  2. Certainly no shortage of cathedrals to memorialize him in.
    Those really are beautiful photos, and I hope his family appreciated the tribute.

  3. It’s time I planned a trip south I think. Stunning photos and a great tribute.

  4. Tributes to your friend through this glorious structures is a strong message in itself. Well done.

  5. A great tribute to your cousin’s husband…
