Violet, I just found out about Dale. I am so very sorry .I had Cole in my pre-school at Caywood's. When you and Dale would come to visit Cole at Caywood's you both were such a joy. Prayers for Dale, you, the family and all his love ones. Dale, you and your family have always been so kind to Alan and me. It is and was a great pleasure to know Dale, you and members of the family. He will be deeply missed. We have given a memorial contribution in Dale's name to St. Paul United Church of Christ.

Sorry just heard about this today and my heart was definitely broken. He probably never knew my name but always pleasant to share a few words with him in passing and his wife who was usually with him. Always could tell he was. Very kind and nice man our loss is Heavens gain. Prayers for family. Love Grows Ruby Busche
