  1. Dear Leonard family…I had the honor of working for Dale last year and I must say I never before had so much fun at work. No one was safe from his good natured ribbing, including himself! I will miss his jokes, laughter, and especially his hugs (“Bring it in!!!”).Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.

    Susan and Family,

    I will always remember Dale as a free fun loving person. The only person I ever knew that played baseball in my living room with olives on New Years Eve.

    Blessing to you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I’m here if you want to talk.

    Never forget, Cherish always, Love forever.

    Delee

    Auntie,

    I just found this and although I have only called once I will always remember how much you and Uncle Dale loved me and John. I am have been thinking of you all often so I googled to see if there was a place I could tell you how much Uncle Dale meant to me.

    I will always remember how he tried to protect us as children, and how he was always concerned about our well being. I am so glad I got to see him as an older adult and I wish he could see that I finally have done something with my life. I am regretfully sorry that I could not spend more time with him and that will live within me forever.

    No matter the time and space between us remember I love you all very much.

    Love always
    Michelle Aspinall. xx
