Dearest Lorraine, Melita and Jeremy,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Through the friendship of so many of our sons, we, the parents, became family to each of the boys and to each other. I always remember Dale willing to lend a helping hand and giving words of encouragement. I feel your loss. Lets get together soon, Lorraine. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Savor your precious memories because Dale will continue to live through those. Much love,
Sharon Umbarger and family.
