Jan, Dale and the Alumni worked so hard together. I never met anyone who would put so much effort into our project. I cannot begin to tell you how much his efforts were appreciated. I am sorry for your loss, and I hope you realize that it is a great loss for the Alumni.

Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your daughters. I, too, lost my husband this year. John died in May at the age of 53 after his 3rd stroke. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the Lord give you strength to get through this sad time. I had hoped to be seeing you two at the Novak family reunion tomorrow.

It has been a long time, but I have fond childhood memories of being at your house in Michigan City and remembering wishing I had parents like you two! My sympathies - its a tough time and nothing I can say will make it better, and I never agreed time heals. I feel that loved one is always with you through it all, and I know he will be there for you, just won't be able to see him as well, am I sure you will feel him though. Take care, in prayer, Meredith Pytynia Grow

Dear Jan,

My almost last electronic communications with Dale had to do with a picture from our 50th High School Reunion just a few short weeks ago. I forwarded it to him and his immediate response was: "Thanks a ton. The minute Jan saw it she wanted a print.I did my best and 5 minutes or so later I had her a perfect print. Thanks again!!"

After reading some of the other on-line comments I totally agree that he was one of the good ones!

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Jan,
When I sent anniversary wishes a couple of years ago, Dale emailed us a beautiful message, saying that you were the best person to come into his life and he didn't know what he ever would have done without you. The love you two have shared has been very obvious throughout the years. May the happy memories eventually outweigh the sad feelings.
Kristy, Ed, Mary, Joe, Eddie

I considered Dale one of the "good ones" at work. I just recently saw an old tractor being rebuilt on one of those fix-it garage shows. I immediately thought of Dale. He told me so many times how much he enjoyed working on his old tractors and keeping them going forever. Maybe Dale and his tractors won't go forever, but my memories of him will.

Jan & Family - It's so hard to believe Dale is gone. It was only August 21sthat Dale e-mailed Dave a batch of blond jokes, Dave laughed so hard he could hardly talk and I literally had tears in my eyes and couldn't breath from laughing so hard. We never thought thought that a week or so later he'd be in the hospital. No more jokes from this great man. He did so many wonderful things affiliated with St. Agnes Church, they lost a wonderful member of their congregation. May he smile down upon you and help you through this difficult time. Gerry & Dave
