Mrs. Dale, Cheryl, Brian, Charles and family, I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Dales passing. I have many fond memories of spending time with your family in Mitchell Hts. Friday night was always steak night at the Dales. Thank you for inviting me in for so many good meals. I'll always remember seeing Mr. Dale in the shoe store on Stratton St. in the 70's. Wow! Time sure passes quickly. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers! May God Bless you all! Best regards, Mike Cook

I remember when my Dad was teaching James to lead the singing in church services. He would tell me James was gonna make a good one. He was right. When Dad passed James took up the task an did a great job. He will be missed by all his spiritual brothers and sisters at Yuma.

I will always remember Brother James with a happy heart. He and Agnus always made church/youth group so much fun when I was a child. Such a good man, who always smiled and spoke kindly to me and my family. We will miss him dearly.
