Mr. Dale was one of my mentors at Gaines fitness center. I think of him everytime I rest between workouts today and still hear him say "if you want to take a nap the yoga room is over there"... I am so sorry that society no longer gets the privilege of being in the presence of such a fine man..RIP buddy....

Dearest Trish, we attended the service this morning and thought David did a great job. We enjoyed hearing more about Dale's background. We loved Dale and you as well. We wanted to come back & speak to you after the service, but Nanette was too emotional & couldn't talk. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you in this most difficult time.

Trish I'm so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Dale for several years at the Glass plant. He was always a great person to be around and he usually had a smile on his face he will truly be missed.
