So sorry for your loss. My memories of Dale come from back when we all went to Emsley church in childhood. Although they were older I always looked up to Dale and his brother Dean. May they both rest in peace.

Dale was a wonderful brother. I remember the times he and Dean teased me on the way to our country church, when we were kids. We enjoyed your visits to us here in upstate NY. See you in heaven, later. Love Sis

Dale was always good to talk to and always willing to lend a hand if we had any problems with the cattle we ran on the other side of his pashure fence. He was a great fixer and a true farmer! May God grant peace to Cheryl and his whole family.
