"Dear Lolly.  You have not been forgotten.  I look back at the happy times we had together. I know you have joined your Mom and Bayo and are free of pain and are at peace."

"I can't believe it's been 3 years since you left us.  I feel you with me at times, and I know it's you.  Our relationship was a fragmented but love always brought us back together.  Love is a very powerful thing and you showed the world that.  It's not fair death is what it took to take your suffering but I find peace in reading everyone's comments on what a wonderful spirit you were through it all.  I miss you and wish we had had more time together to fill in each other's holes in our hearts from being torn apart.  Love you always...."

"Happy Birthday my dear friend. Oh how much I miss you and wish you were here to celebrate your special day. I loved you and your beautiful smile so much. I miss seeing you get all dolled up and going out to dinner with me.  I miss your precious laugh. I think about you all the time. Everytime I see something pretty, purple or with sparkling glitter.  Brandi and Tyler miss you too. Thank God we took lots of pictures because those are my precious memories to remind me how much fun we had. I love and miss you so much Dale. Lol.  I can only wait until the time comes when we reunite. I love you pretty lady"

"I want to say hello to my friend Dale and also to her family members and friends thru this online memorial.  As it is written in The Bible, our lives or but vapors: we are here one moment and gone the next.  Our dear friend Dale's life ended too soon, but it is not ourselves, but our Lord who determines the length of our years.  As I get older, I see how fleeting time is:   the hours, days, weeks, months and years of our life seem to pass by so rapidly.  It won't be long before we enter into the next dimension.  This is why I hope that  all those who read my tribute to Dale know the importance of accepting Jesus as your savior, truly repenting for your sins and submitting your lives to our Father in Heaven who has created all of us and brought us all together in this particular point in time.  I know Dale was saved, so I am happy to say that I can confidently say that I know that she is now in Heaven with our Father in a joyful state which is beyond our earthly comprehension.  I know Dale would want me to share this message with all of you, for, as myself, she knew the importance of not only knowing the truth and good news which our dear & loving Father gave up His son, Jesus' so that, we can escape the death of sin and have everlasting life, but Dale also Knew the importance of sharing this this truth and message of hope  with others, who have not been saved yet and are lost,  which is the duty of all Christians who have chosen eternal Life thru Jesus and to have their names written in God's Book of Life.  If you want to join our dear friend Dale in Heaven after you leave this dimension, please do not delay another moment accepting Jesus as your savior, asking Him to come into your heart, repenting for all of your past, present and future sins and doing your best to live a life that is pleasing to our Father & which does not grieve Him in any way for none of us is guaranteed tomorrow let alone our next breath.  My friend, do not delay, for once you enter into the next dimension, you will no longer be able to accept Jesus as your savior as the Holy Bible warns.  If this happens, you will not only not be able to see our dear friend Dale again, but you will be condemned to an eternity of unfathomable pain and suffering in Hell. Do not worry if the size of your faith in The Trinity (God, His son Jesus and the Holy Spirit) is comparable to that of a mustard seed, for it is written in The Bible, (God's inspired Words, given by God Himself thru the writings of man) that our merciful, loving and all forgiving father will accept whatever size faith you come to Him with, so long as you just come to Him and tell him that you accept Him as your savior while you are still alive my friend.  May God guide all who read my tribute to Dale back home to Our Father in Heaven in Jesus name I pray.  Amen"

"I remember Dale from Adam's graduation from Oberlin. It was raining cats and dogs so Dale and the rest of us wrapped up in giant plastic garbage bags to protect us from the deluge.  She was cheerful and strong, as it seems she was much of her life.  Uhuru, you embraced her so beautifully in her last years.  She loved both of you very much"

"Knowledge of one's spirit may be as binding as fellowship with the person. I feel as though I "know" her because of some of the good that God placed in her will be found in you, through the work of your hands. May her spirit soar !"

"When Dale became engaged to my brother, I got to know her mostly through 1960's long distance methods. I learned that many folks called her Lolly. As we got to love each other, I came to call her Lollipop. They honeymooned in California where I was then living and the next year we traveled in Europe together and had many delightful adventures. I cherish my closeness to her children."

"Lolly and I were good friends our first year of high school.  I remember her striking beauty, fine intelligence, but most of all, her kindness.  We lost touch when we were about 21.   I always wondered what had happened to such a great person. I am comforted to know she was surrounded by loving family. Peggy Richek Goldberg"

"It is beautiful to see so many loved ones sharing memories of their time spent with Dale. Definitely a loving woman with great strength; who always smiled so brightly when I called her "Rogue," a nickname I gave her for being mischievous. I have to also be thankful to you Dale for giving birth to my best friend, wife and, soulmate Uhuru. You will be missed Dale Smith, until we meet again."

"It's hard to find the words to express over 30 years of memories i have of the friendship and love Dale and I shared. Our lives were interwined in many ways.  I feel blessed that she was a part of my life and now is part of memories."

This tribute was added by Sylvia Kravitz on 27th October 2013

"I can't find the words to express over 30 years of memories that have bcome a part of my life.  For many years we talked everyday, I remember when the days were dark for me, how she called everyday to see if I was alright.  I remember how she shared her love for Adam and Uhuru with me and kept me  informed of the various events in her children's lives.  Dale's life was a blessing I enjoyed"

This tribute was added by Peter Aiello on 27th October 2013

"My dear sweet friend Dale.  Your cross was big, but your heart and courage was bigger.  Although it would have been much easier, & certainly understandable for you to have just given up and become very bitter about the hard circumstances which life dealt you, your spirit was too strong & your nature too selfless for that.  I'm both honored and grateful to have known you & been your friend."

"So many remember Dale's smile, I will send a picture of the smile I remember."

"God looked around His garden, and He found an empty place. And then He look down upon the earth, and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. (author unknown)"

"Dale's ability to make me smile and charm those around her will stay with me. Her warmth and creative energy changed the world she lived in. It made it Technicolor. Thank you for sharing this with me, Uhuru."

"I happened upon Lolly's memorial quite by chance. We had not seen one another since high school days but I remember her vibrance , energy, and her smile as if it was yesterday. I only knew her for a brief whisper time . She was quite a memorable person. It sounds like her heart touched many and she will be missed greatly. My thoughts are with you all in your time of loss."

"I remember the first time I met Dale (Lolly).  She was a new 9th grader in my math class.  Her bright eyes and radiant smile were matched by  top notch behavior and performance--always prepared to answer questions.  Through Lolly I met and became friends with her Mom, Gram, and stepdad, a lasting friendship. Lolly and I enjoyed good times and stayed friends during the rough ones. Peace!"

""Dale was a vibrant and loving person. My earliest memories of her were in kindergarten. She had a convertible car and I remember how exciting it was when she put me and Uhuru in the back seat and drove us home from school with the top down. When I think back on it I see images of sunshine, wind in our hair, and Dale smiling from ear to ear. She always had the biggest smile.""

"Hi everybody. Thank you all for visiting this site. I am very sorry but almost all my photos of my mom are in Bolivia, where they were left during the emergency medical evacuation of her grandson, Isaiah, to Miami Children's Hospital. Isaiah has his grandma to thank for his life. It was in large part her sacrifice that allowed him to live. Mom loved her children and grandchildren so much!"

"What a sweet, caring and precious soul. So many memories of the good times with Uhuru and Danielle growing up. We are so grateful that God brought our families together.

I gave you a hug and knew right then there will be a connection forever. You were such a loving and caring person. I will never forget all the good times we shared. I will always remember what a strong, poised and glamor girl you were! I love and miss you!"
