My prayers are with you, Linda, and your family. I was so sad to hear about Dale. He was a good caring friend; and a dependable and hard worker. I enjoyed working with him for 10 years. He loved his job and was dedicated in controlling predators for the cattle and sheep ranchers. He loved his horses and his dogs! I admired him and tremendously enjoyed watching him train them to work for him. May your many special memories be of comfort to you! May you know that my thought and prayers are with you!

Linda, I am so sorry to hear of the death of Dale. He will be greatly missed. I am so thankful for our knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. Although it doesn't stop the pain, at least we know that we will be with them again. My prayers are with you and your family. I wish I could be there, but we have other obligations. I will be thinking of you.

God bless you always!

I am so sad to hear of Dale's passing. The friends we make in high school are always special and dear to us. I'll always remember Dale for his smile and his willingness to help with anything he was asked to do. He was a leader because he was kind and everyone liked him. One of the most thoughtful things he and Linda did for me was to take a picture of my grandparents' old home in Kanosh and send it to me. That is a treasure for me and my famiy and I appreciate it more than I can say. My prayers are with all of you and may God bless you all.
