    I remember Dale from hearing him preach in the Eldon area when I was young. He always had a joke and made everyone he talked to feel like they had his undivided attention. I was just a kid and still remember that. My deepest condolences to the family.

    Sharon, I had the great opportunity to learn a lot from Dale at work when all the Service Desk was centralized in KSC. We were all invited out to your home for an IT Department get together; you could feel the love that was built there. Heaven has celebrated his arrival, and he is free from his health issues. My condolences to you and to your family in this difficult time.
