As I heard the news of my cousin Dale, I thought of us as children.
It was always a treat when his family came to visit our grandfather, Alpha Case, who lived across the street from me.
I was not quite three years older than him and we were close. He was a ruff and tumble boy. Loved to play and get dirty. When Dale joined the Navy I was so proud. I too was in the Navy, he was on the west coast and I was on the East Coast.  We didn't see each other much after becoming adults, but my parents did see him on their trips to Arizona. They would stop in Big Cabin and chat a while.
I am sure he found my parents when he went to Heaven.  Hey Dale, this place will always be here in memory of you. 
Love
Pudge

Today makes 5 years since you said goodbye and even though the pain has lessened over the years this day and your birthday are always hard on me but with the love of family and friends I'm able to push through them and keep on going. A lot has happened in 5 years and it doesn't even seem like it's been that long. It still feels like I'm going to see you this weekend and we are going bowling Saturday morning like we always did. I love and miss you so much Dad and I know your always with me but today isn't about being sad mourning a loss it's about celebrating a life and memories of a loving father that God needed more.

Hey Tuffy,

I thought about you yesterday, even talked about you to a friend of mine at church. Then this morning my computer said today is the anniversary of Dale leaving this Earth.
Prayers to his family in Oklahoma and his brothers in Ohio. His parents are with him and his sister.

Miss you Dale.

Dad and grandpa give grandma a hug for me. I miss you guys. I regret the fact that I never got to see or talk to you much grandma and i know it was mostly my fault cause i never called. I should have called you every Saturday like how dad use to do but I didn't and now its to late. Dad I know I let you down and I am sorry. Time is precious and short, don't take the time we spend with someone for granted because you never know if you will get another chance. I miss you Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa and I love you all RIP  Daisy Setzler

Hard to be it's already been three years it still seems like it was just yesterday I miss you more and more each day it always gets harder this month each year but I know your looking down at me watching over me and if you could I'd know you say son I know things are rough and hard right now and I'm sure you have a lot of questions and I wish I could answer them but I can't but just know that I am very proud of the man your becoming,
God has a plan for you just hang in there and he'll show you the way I love you son. Oh if I could just hear you say those words to me maybe just maybe I could believe that everything is going to be ok.

I love you Dad you are the best father anyone could have asked for I know we didn't always see eye to eye but you were always there when I needed you and even though your in a better place I know your always with me where ever I go in life I love you so much. RIP


Brandon Six -  Ur dad would so proud of the man u have become. Just keep on the path u have chose and he will always be looking down from the clouds telling all the angels "that is my son and I am so proud of him".

Late night thinking
It's been over 2 and 1/2 years sense my dad past away and for the longest time I never could figure out why God would take him away from me, that I was not ready for him to go that I still needed him. So I constantly prayed about it hopping one day I would get my answer and just as I was about to give up on asking I believe I have found my answer. God leaves people on earth as long as they are needed by someone and when they are no longer needed he calls them home, as much as I want my dad to still be here with me so I can talk to him and just to see him again. I no longer needed him, God believed that my dad had already taught me everything that he could teach me and God was missing one of his Angel and knew it was time for him to come home. I miss my dad more and more every day there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him or see something that reminds me of him, and yes I wish he could still be here with me to see me start my life journey and got to see me graduate or get to meet my future wife and attend our wedding and be there when I have kids, though he may not physically be here but I know he is watching over me every step of the way and I know he will be there for all the important things is my life. Dad I love and miss you so much I hope your proud of the man I becoming, thank you for everything you have taught me I can only hope I can be half the man you are I miss you so much it still hurts but I know your not truly gone and I can still talk to you when ever. We all love and miss you Dad. RIP
Brandon

We were so shocked to hear about Dale ( I called him my sweetie - that was our pet name for one another) - oh how we will miss him! His kindness, gentleness, & most of all his humor.
 I remember going to Mansfield with him to a truck pull & he was our entertainment - no one on the bleachers was watching the trucks because we were all laughing too hard from all of Dale's jokes.
We are so sorry for your loss - I can't stop crying - he was our dear friend. Our thoughts & prayers go out to all of you.
We would love to be there at the funeral but we live in Ohio - hugs to all of you.
God Bless
 Mary Ann & Skip Brutsche (Dale's Buddies)
 P.S. We love you Dale & will surely miss you!

Everybody probably has a Dale story. This is just one of ours. Dale always loved giving my daughter, Alex, a hard time - teasing and such. When she was a teenager, we happened to run into him at Walmart. Sure enough, in just a few minutes, we heard over the loud speaker "Little Alex Jones, your Mommy is waiting for you at the service desk". Of course, Alex being a teenager, was horrified, but it was funny. It's almost fitting that the last time we saw Dale was at Wal-Mart, the night before he passed. Dale was a funny, funny guy.
