  1. I was dishearted to receive the call from Colleen about Dale’s passing; yet rejoice in his life eternal in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Dale returned to the church while I was the pastor and we became good friends immediately. Throughout all of his hospital stays, Dale was so encouraging; he never complained and always had a positive attitude. He loved singing in the Ellwood City Choral and had a great appreciation for music. It was a blessing to be Dale’s pastor and friend. You are in my heart during this time.

  2. I will miss seeing you coming home from Denny’s or throwing darts. Bingo will not be the same without you. Who is going to sit next to me now? Rest now and enjoy walking with God and not suffering anymore. You were a very good neighbor and friend. I will miss you….

  3. To my best friend. I was with you every step of the way in your fight against the cancer and all of your other medical issues throughout the years. It was agonizing to watch and know that the future was even going to be more painful for you. I have never met anyone with more courage than you nor anyone with a more positive attitude through it all. God spared you the future agony you would have faced and now you are at peace and not suffering. You will be in my heart forever.
