Dale's kindess to others and enthusiasm for life are two of her many qualities I remember from our time together as young girls in Iris Assembly. And the mutual devotion and respect she and Bobbie had for each other was abundantly clear - even as teenagers. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, Bobbie, in this time of sorrow. May God hold you especially close.

In my first year of teaching, I met Dale. I was lucky to be able to enjoy her many prior years of teaching experiences through her generous support for 7 years at Carmichael Elementary School before she retired. I recall a small sign pinned to a small stuff purple hippo left behind indicating her sadness in vacating room 13 as she departed to enjoy her retirement. Now that same hippo, bearing the same sign, reminds me of the sadness I feel as I say “Good-Bye” again to a dear friend. Although you will be missed each day by many, you will remain in our hearts for eternity.

Dale was a kind, gentle person who left the world a better place then she found it. I know she will be missed by her friends and family but most of all by her sister and best friend, Bobbie. My sympathies to you, Bobbie. Kathryn Tedford, Daraga, Philippines
