    I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God “will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”

    WHERE ARE ALL THE FRIENDS WHO KNEW DALE…HAS ALL LOVE IN THIS WORLD GROWN COLD AS THE
    BIBLE SAYS? DALE WAS A GOOD MAN WITH A LOVING HEART, WHO CARED FOR OTHERS AT SOME SACRIFICE TO HIMSELF. FAMILIES MIGHT FIND COMFORT IN YOUR COMMENTS.

  4. LOUELLA COX

    THANK YOU, BOTH, SERENA AND HEATHER, FOR YOUR SWEET AND COMFORTING NOTES. DALE WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED YOU, ESPECIALLY, SERENA, BECAUSE OF YOUR FAMILY’S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS MOTHER. AND I WILL REMEMBER YOU BOTH, WITH GRATITUDE, FOR REMEMBERING AND HONORING DALE WITH YOUR COMMENTS. IT IS MY REAL COMFORT TO KNOW HE IS WITH THE LORD, SAFE, AND NOT SUFFERING ANYMORE. MY TIME WITH HIM WAS A SHORT 6 1/2 YEARS AND IT SEEMS UNBELIEVEABLE HE COULD BE GONE SO SOON, BUT HE WAS MY SPECIAL GIFT FROM GOD, AND I THANK GOD FOR EVERY MOMENT WE HAD….AND FOR KINDNESS FROM FRIENDS LIKE YOU. LOUELLA COX.
