Dear Mr. Dudley,

I may be 66 years old now, but I still think of you fondly as “Mr. Dudley”, as that is what I called you when you were our BYF leader and mentor. You remain fixed in my mind as a devoted Christian man who cared about the high school members of Manlius Baptist Church in the 1960’s. You gave your time, your care and your concern to all of us. You were there with us at Church, on trips and on paper drives. Your influence in our lives is appreciated more than you will ever know.

As Christmas 2012 approaches, I wish you a blessed time for celebrating Christ’s birth.

Merry Christmas,
Gail Bock Garlinghouse
