Dale, it has been 3 months and 11 days since God took you from us, and took you home with him. There hasn't been 1 day that has went by that I haven't thought of you, and missed you. I still hold you in my heart, and I always will.
There has been so many people come into my job since I went back to work that have asked about you, and had to tell them that you were no longer with us. All have sent their deepest sympathy's, and some have even cried when they learned about what happened. Several have even said it is strange not seeing you sitting on the bench outside my job waiting so patiently for me.
Even tho you are no longer with me here on earth, I know deep down you are still with me and watching over me, as well as the rest of your loved ones. You were my angel here on earth, as you are now my guardian angel in heaven. I still love you, and you will always be in my heart. I also know you are resting in peace, no longer suffering, and in God's arms, where he is taking special care of you for all of us. There will come a day that we will be joined back together again in heaven, and that will be a very special day for you and me. There will never be anyone that can replace you,or the love we had for each other. Rest in Peace my love.

Dale we will greatly miss you. He was man of honor, he fought for his counrtry and died for his country. He was always friendly and caring and willing to help anyone he knew. He and Donna were soul mates they made each other whole, they were each othets rock no matter what came they could handle it. The memory that keeps coming back is him sitting outside her work, on a bench, waiting happily for her to get off. Rest in peace, brother.
