Thinking of you all during this time of loss. We have had a lot of fun times with Dale... at his roping pen, at the Ponder's, at the Velma Picnic, at little league baseball games, and just wherever we might meet along the road. He had a good sense of humor and we will miss him. With Sympathy... Doug and Sandie
