I am so sorry for your loss. Dale was a wonderful person. I really thought of her often. Years ago she gave my boys a box turtle to care for. They enjoyed that so much! I never forgot her kindness. She is with God and with no pain.

Dale was a strong willed person. I knew Dale from working at Apple Creek Dev. Center. I was so very glad for the get together that you held and she got to see many of her co-workers. We got to talk and reminisce with her. Such a great time. My deepest sympathy to her family.

RIP Dale....fly high my friend!! I wish to give our condolences to Tip, Dales children and all of her extended family and friends. May peace be in your hearts and faith that Dale has become one of God's angels to look after all of us from heaven where she no longer lives in pain or suffering. I believe that is the only thing comforting about this whole thing is that this wonderful person is no longer suffering!!! I know the hurt that we all are going through but we must believe that God is the light and saviour of our lives here on earth and in heaven. God Bless all of Dales family and friends......she had many. And Amen ? to you! Peace be with you always.
