I would like to nominate Dale and Roger Sage of Longview, Texas for all of the volunteer work they have done to improve children's lives and the lives of the mentally handicapped adults of Longview.
We both attend and are members of the First Baptist Church in Longview and this is where I have admired them from afar. They teach the adults in the special ministry. I watch them walk in the sanctuary with these mentally handicapped adults, sit with them and see that they get home after the service.
( I have two articles that were written about them that gives more information.) In one article, they were asked why they continue to teach long past retirement, and the Sages just smiled and said , "They never complain."
I don't believe Dale and Roger know that I'm submitting their name for this honor. I checked with their daughter, Judge Robin Sage of Longview to get her approval and she was thrilled.
