Mrs. Martha and family,

You and Mr Dale have been unbelievable role models and friends to my family and the whole community. He was a good, loyal, and strong man. My favorite thing about him though is how funny he was. He could make my Dad cry laughing with his stories. That’s a special gift he had and will always be remembered.
Michael and family

Dear Jeffery, Millie, Martha, Ashley Rose, and Family...I love y'all and I loved Dale. Having seen him about 2 weeks ago I never would have expected this, however, God has a plan and it's one we don't always understand. My prayer for you all is to lean on each other and let our wonderful God comfort you during this time and all the days to come. I know you have many, many memories that will bring you joy, even in the midst of the tears. Much love sent to whom I consider, and have been blessed with, my extended family, Belinda
