So sorry to hear of my cousin Dale's passing. Had not remained in touch for many years seems as we age and our parents
pass on those connections are lost. Remember many good times growing up getting together at Thanksgiving especially. He
had the nicest train set we all enjoyed playing with it. His cabin he had was always a good escape from the grown ups as we got older. Thinking of everyone at this very sad time. Hang on to your memories. Donita Proctor

So sorry of hearing of Dale’s passing. I remember him growing up across Park street from me. Have not seen him for years but we had good times as childhood friends. My condolences to Dale’s family. I know he will be missed by many.
