  11. Of all the many fond memories I have of Uncle Dale, I am the most reminded of the many visits he made to us on 24 Vista Drive, ‘just checking in’ early in the morning for coffee and pleasant conversation. Chynna said, ‘Are his dogs with him, too?’ ‘Jesus can take care of him now, Mommy.’ Her words are the comforting ones that I would like to share.
    Aunt Lola, Randy, Leanna and families; We are burdened by the loss of Uncle Dale. I thank God for all the wonderful memories of Uncle Dale through the years. Our prayers will be with you.

  13. Lola, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Work prevented me from being able to visit at the funeral home. Just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  14. This message is for Lola, Dale’s wife. I have known you for many years through mom and dad. You are such a precious lady to me and to my whole family. I am so sorry for the loss of Dale. I got to meet him a few times at your house. He was a very sweet man. I remember him coming to pick up you dog out of your office. You and your family are in my prayers. The wonderful thing to remember is that you will see him again. God tells us that if we are His children we will be together forever. So you will be seperated for only a little while. May God bless you and hold you tightly in His everlasting arms during this time. Love you – elaine

  16. To Dale’s Family…
    What a shock to learn of Dale’s passing. I used to live at 21 Hi Alta back in the fifties, with the Creasman’s. We all played ball together up on the hill and I went to Enka High. Dale was always the kind and considerate one of the group and I have many fond memories of him, the Harper’s, Reeds and many more. Your Family will be in my prayers. God Bless!

  17. Sorry to hear about your loss. The loss of a loved one is very hard to get through.However the word of god says he would never leave or forsake us. You can find comfort in the word of God. Dale is resting in the arms of God, in heaven. Where there is no more pain and the sting of death shall never be felt again. Dale has a new gloryfied body and is rejoicing with the one who died that we may go free. Our thoughts and prayes are with you in this time of sorrow.
    May God wrap his big loving arms around you and your family and keep you through the tring times.
