Ever since I met Dale and got to know him. He was always saw the funnier side of life. Whenever The guys would get together for a poker game Dale was always the highlight of the game. We all enjoyed having his sense of humor at the games. Dale always seemed like he enjoyed being around his grand kids. Even though we did not see each other all the time. I will miss seeing him when everybody gets together.

Dale was one of the good ones. I always enjoyed his company, even when he was taking my money at the poker table. I appreciated his humor and wit.
Fly High, you’ve earned it.

From the first time I showed up at your house you welcomed me in and I'll never forget that. I probably wasn't what you imagined for your daughter with the window shaking bass coming from the car, the frequently dyed hair or the baggy jeans but you never cared (or at least did a good job pretending not to). When it came to father-in-laws I hit the jackpot. All of my friends that had the pleasure of playing poker with you or enjoying a cookout with you have all told me here lately how awesome you were. You mean the world to these kids and we'll make sure that they always carry you with them. We love ya!

Dad, I’m trying to be the strong girl you raised just like I promised but it’s tough. I still think you’d be proud of me though. I miss you more than words can express.
A couple of my favorite memories would be making “hallway” tents and wrestling. You were such a good dad. I remember making a hallway tent one time, you let us fall asleep in there just to wake us later so we could all sit in there to eat popcorn and drink hot chocolate. The wrestling matches were the best. We even had a heavy weight title belt.
I have so many good memories and I promise that I will never forget. I will make sure that Colton and Lincoln never forget. We love you so much dad. It hurts my heart that I even have to write this. It’s unreal. I will miss you and love you always!
