As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

May God give you His peace during this difficult time. Letting go, even when you know in your heart that it's time, can still be painful, We pray that memories will make this transition as joyful as it is saddening. It's comforting to know that as you stand on the dock and wave goodbye to your loved one, as he makes his final voyage that as the ship comes to port, those who have gone before him will be there waving to welcome him home. Peace, Fred and Diann Hay

We will miss Dale; BIL and Uncle to us. We visited him, & we, with Ursula when she was alive. UAW 446 was notified of his death: Dick M. has, in a scrapbook, an RT photo of Dale's last day at Chrysler Foundry. RIP Dale! His obituary is perfect. He was also an avid walker & a great uncle & BIL! He always had a beer with Al, in his basement when Bernadine was alive. We also have some good recent. photos of Dale since Bernadine died! Best wishes!
