Bernice...I was so sorry to hear about your dear husbands’ passing. Dale was one of the “good guys” and will be missed by everyone who knew him. We never know how or why God chooses as He does, but I am positive He is holding Dale in His loving arms at this moment in time. Please accept my prayers and deepest sympathy for you and your family.
