Dale and I go back to first grade and earlier. Over the years there were lapses in our association as we raised a family and made ends meet. After retirement we reconnected and Helen and Nettie became friends. Dale and I spoke over the telephone at least once a week and we could easily drop into 7th grade humor. Always fun. I will miss him for a long time. RIP and Semper Fi !! old friend. My heart goes out to Nettie and Steve and other family members.
