You, Dale and your sons are so very special to me and my daughters. I cherish all the years we spent together when you lived in St. Charles, Illinois. Those memories I will have forever. I feel blessed to have known Dale and I'm thankful to have you as my best friend the last 22 years. You and your whole family are in my prayers and hold a very special place in our hearts.

Dale and his family were a major part of my early childhood years; they lived across the street from me and truly helped raise me. To this day, you are all still a special part of my life and will continue to be. I am happy I was able to see Dale before he passed. I know he is resting in peace and without pain now. I love you all and stay strong Linda Loo.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Dale's family and closest friends. I know that he touched so many through the years. He certainly meant the world to my wife Linda, both as a co-worker and as a friend.

I am sorry to hear about Dale's passing. I worked with Dale here in Sears' home office for many years and always wondered why he called me "Necktie". I will miss his sense of humor and friendship. Rest in peace, Dale.
