    Carol,
    You waited a long time to find the right man and Dale was certainly the one. Katie and I are so sorry that he is gone so soon. It is a difficult time but the pain and sorrow will pass and the good memories will come. Like of how just bringing up the word train, brought a smile to his face, how making you things for your garden and your hobbies was a joy to him. Time does heal all. Love you and see you soon.
    Terry

    Carol, when I think of Dale, I remember his wonderful grin/smile and his ‘quirky’ sense of humor- just thinking of it makes me smile! I also think of how patient he was with me while trying to teach me about the computer when fixing the messes I somehow got myself into. He will be missed!
    With love, thoughts and prayers,

    Carol we are so shocked to hear of Dales passing. He was a good friend and somehow we lost touch. We are thinking of you and his family at this very difficult time. He had a great sense of humour and you could ask him anything mechanically and he knew the answer. We are so sorry for your loss!
