Just thinking today about you Dale you were a dedicated officer, father, husband, and even w all those responsibilities still took the time to take me, another kid under your wing after my father passed. All my life I have thought how high you have set the bar, I know you are dearly missed by all who knew you, your love of others and your love of life.
