Kevin and Keith, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your father. He was a very good friend, to my mom Johnnie Mae , and in her opinion could do no wrong. He was a good man, a good boss, a good friend, and Im positive will be missed by all who knew him. I also thought a lot of Dale , and dont think I ever saw him without a smile and kind words. I am truly sorry for your loss.
A neighbor just told me of the passing of Dale. Dale and Shirley and his mom and dad, Fern and Carl (POP) were the best neighbors a person could ever ask for. They will be greatly missed and will not forget the fun we had as neighbors.
