Betty and Family...saddened to read about Dale. Worked with him for eight years and he was a Supervisor every department hopes to hire but not always successful. Dale was always calm, even in the face of crisis, with never a harsh word. For those of us who worked with him, I know I can say we all feel saddened with this news and he will be missed. Hope the memories of Dale ease your grief in the days ahead. Veronica Taylor

Dear Betty and family, We were very sorry to hear about Dale's passing. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. The kindness that you and Dale showed to my mother when she was at Fairwinds is often remembered.

Terry and Ingrid Mason

So very sorry to read of Dale's passing. I so recently saw him at the Paterson dinner where he kindly offered to get me coffee. As usual, he was thinking of others. My sincerest sympathy.

Eleanor Vargo

I had the pleasure of working with Dale while I trained in diagnostic imaging. Dale was a kind and considerate person-always having the patient's comfort in mind. He greeted everyone with a smile and a good morning when they arrived at the xray department and put them as ease. He was a thoughtful manager and ran our department with efficiency and kindness. You couldn't have asked for a nicer person to work for. He will be missed greatly. My deepest sympathy to you Betty and your family. Lynne Allen
