"Hi Dale,
Normally I am on the computer by six, but "we" have a new "All-in-One," that doesn't like me, so I put off logging on. Ugh. So, "The Accountant" a movie, was after your time on Earth, but the main song reminded me of you.“To Leave Something Behind”
“Oh wisdom is lost in the trees somewhere
You're not going to find it in some mental gray hair
It's locked up from those who hurry ahead
And it's time to leave something behind”
You left kindness, caring, empathy, sweetness, & understanding, just to name a few, behind. What a Blessing. Thank You for your many Gifts. God Bless, Karie"

"Another year has passed without you here on earth.  However, you are here in my heart and I remember you often.  Soar with the Angels my friend."

"Good Early Morning Dale,
Yes, I am writing to you EARLIER than usual, THAT my friend is due to the time change. “They” say you gain an hour of sleep, but I STILL am on the “old” schedule.
Oh get this, I thought my cellphone would AUTOMATCALLY change, fall back one-hour. Here’s the scoop:  After much struggle of forcing myself to stay in bed I got up at 4:20AM, (I usually get up at 4:30AM). I did my usual chores/responsibilities & then hopped onto the computer.
According to the computer time, I got up at 3:20AM, my cellphone did NOT FALL BACK. UGH. I hope this isn’t an issue in Heaven. Tiny snicker.
Thank you for the friendly rain; please keep sending it.
I KNOW I am ALWAYS asking for help, but Tuesday is the Presidential Election day. I’m scared; FIRST time I have been scared of an election outcome. Neither candidate is “worthy.” My opinion of course. YOU have a birds-eye view; could you help me decide WHICH is the BETTER candidate? GREATLY appreciated.
So, what’s going on with you?
Do you ever visit your old stomping ground, “Gem Equipment?”
This planet is a double-edged sword; the world lost a GREAT Human Being, BUT Heaven GAINED one…
Keep up the GOOD work, & THANK YOU for ALL your HELP.
Signing out.
God Bless."

"Hi Dale, Happy Birthday to YOU! Although I LOVE the song, "Amazing Grace," it makes me sad. :( Trying to hold back tears. Ugh. The "Happy Birthday" song should be programmed to your birth DATE, so I won't be sad. After all, it is ALL about me Dale. Silly me. Little giggle. IF you make a Birthday Wish, could you wish for rain, ONLY the west coast though...OH, and NO monsoon. ONE more request, when you blow out the candles, don't blow too hard; arsonists & wind tend to help each other. Thank You. Enjoy your day Dale. I MISS YOU. God Bless. :)"

"Today is one of those days that I dread because of the loss/sadness/grief that has been attached, yet it is a day that is awarded with a release of pain, a place in Heaven, a chance to reflect and say, “Thank You.”
Before I forget, thank you for the rain. Please continue to send rain, no monsoons! Thank you in advance.
So Dale, we write on your sites, but is there a site in Heaven that you write upon telling us about how wonderful we are/were/are…?
LOL, oh yeah, it’s no longer LOL and/or HEE, the correct laughter is HAHA, yeah right.
Okay My Friend, God Bless You & Your Family, and KNOW that YOU were an AWESOME human, which equates to a HEAVENLY SOUL.
Later, Karie"

"My tears are still falling over losing you so soon in this life.  Miss you everyday.   I find myself still talking out loud to you when I see something I know you would like to take a picture of.  The fall colors in Hope Valley this year were amazing.   I shared that with you and then clicked my own pictures.  I know your pictures would have been better!  I will enjoy the sunsets for you here on earth, until we meet again."

"Ian is off to Washington, DC for Veteran's Day. He will be with many of his VietNam brothers.  Wish Dale was able to join him.  Dale was a gentle man, he will always be remembered!"

"OOPS, Happy REALLY Belated Birthday!
As Maxwell Smart would say, “Sorry about that Chief!”

Say today is a FULL Moon.
Did you know that the different phases of the moon is used as a comparison to an individuals’ development?
Yes, the FULL Moon is symbolic for maturity & pregnancy.
No maturity here, but THAT explains my full-grown hips!
Oh, and no pregnancy either, too mature, lol.
The astrology version of the FULL Moon is that it represents the Soul.
I like this rendition for it is “telling;” YOUR Soul is Full of an unlimited list of Virtues.
So when viewing the Full Moon, my inclination is to say HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY Dale, and Thank You God for the Gift of the Full Moon, which is Dale.
Perhaps tonight the “Man in the moon,” will reveal Your Face.
Take a picture.
Since I said all these nice & truthful things about you, PLEASE send RAIN!!!
I will continue to miss you.
God Bless You & Your Family."

"Hi Dale,
Well, your site was a lot easier to get on than Obamacare. I KNOW you are laughing cuz that was pretty funny! I think of you every day; I find you in the brightness of the stars, the song of the birds, the breeze through the trees, smiles on faces, laughter...I miss you, but I know that you are safe and pain free. :) God Bless."

"I saw this quote and thought of you My Friend, “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”  ~Marcel Proust  
Happy 66th Birthday Dale!!!  :)"

"Such a sad day.  I have sent Dale cookies when he was in the service overseas, visited him numerous times at the bike shop on Main Street in Ventura, enjoyed his visits at my parent's house, and will always hear his laughter. He was like a big brother to me. My thoughts and prayers are with Dale's family."
