Dear Friends,
During times such as these it is so hard to put into words the feelings that we endure. Memories of times gone past fill our minds, only to be clouded by harsh realities of today’s tragic loss. We sincerely hope that amid all the confusion and rough times you are able to find a smile in the life you were able to share in. Dale was a wonderful person and I am glad I had the chance to get to know him. In our short time as friends I knew him as a man that always seemed to find a way to put a smile on my face. You were blessed with so much more time than I and I am sure there are many, many memories that you will hold dear forever. It is not what we take from this world that is important, but what we leave behind. Dale left us with fond memories of laughter, love and for me he left one of the best friends I have ever had. Thank you Dale. May God bless you all and be with you through this time of loss and sadness.
God Bless
