I received some very sad news this weekend. The founder of the Lighthouse Stamp Society, Dalene Thomas, passed away on Friday Oct. 23, 2020 in Colorado, USA. Dalene worked tirelessly to maintain the LHSS and published the Philatelic Beacon for 27 years before retiring at the end of 2019. I recently contacted her about obtaining the back issues of the Beacon to post in an archives section of this website and she graciously agreed and told me that her health was failing and she was glad to have her work of over a quarter century in a safe place. Little did I know that she would leave us less than a week after I received her files. This website will continue to be dedicated to Dalene’s memory. May she rest in peace.
