  1. June and Family,

    Know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of your church family. A phrase that comes to mind every time I think of Dale is “a life well lived”. I have treasured our friendship. June, you know we live nearby, if there is ANYTHING I can help with – please don’t hesitate to call. We have a long scheduled family gathering in Texas this weekend and can’t be at the memorial service. But, please know you are in the thoughts of my family and constantly held up in our prayers.
