I just saw this...over two years later. Dale and his Doberman Sheba were my neighbors many years ago. Dale was such a fine man and would do anything for anyone. I missed his Christmas emails the past couple of years. I knew from the last time we talked that he was having health issues. Then today i found this. God bless his sweet soul.

my condolences to the family. Dale was a very good man and a friend whom I for one had total respect. May he always rest in peace and run with the heavenly family of dobermans up above. You will be missed my friend.
