We will miss Uncle Dale very much. We loved to hear his stories of his childhood and his laughter. God bless you Uncle Dale.

Jeff and family: We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. We know this is a sad and difficult time for you.

Know that you are being thought of and you are all in our prayers. May the wonderful memories you have of your father and grandfather give you comfort and hope.

God bless you at this difficult time.

Dale Jr. & family: We were so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter what age they are. We send our sympathy to your family as they all adjust to 'life without Grandpa Dale'.
