I can still remember hanging around with Dale at the Pal and at their home behind the Pal. His dad was also one of the best and I'm sure he learned so much from him. Although I moved away to Vidalia the memories remained. God bless you Dale.

Mr. Dale was a a kind, caring, soul. He worked at Plant Hatch with my father and grandfather. I met him only about 3 years ago and I am thankful for all of our long talks. He will be greatly missed. I wish I lived closer and could attend services. His family is in my thoughts and prayers.
