Cookie and Norma Lee, We are so sorry of your loss. We are sending our love and prayers in this hard time. “Cookie” we have many many memories with you and Dale , and that is going back quite a few years when you lived down in Steinersville at the top of the hill. And me, I spent a lot of time at you house, you guys were great and fun to be with. Mom, dad and you guys had lots of fun. When I come home to visit I always look in to your place ,but like always , in a hurry. I have a big family now and have to get alot of places. But …my next visit home I am going to make time to spend a few minutes with you and Norma.”God Bless” you have our sympathy!

Dearest Aunt Cookie and Norma, My heart goes out to both of you, I know Uncle Dale is in heaven, probably fussing at us all for being so sad. I have beautiful memories of him, which I have carried throughout the years, I regret that I never made it home to visit. He isn’t suffering anymore, let that ease your mind. He will be missed always. He was one of the greatest men I knew, someone who always comforted me as a child, I never forgot that. God bless you both, sending you lots of love today and always. Take care of each other. Love you both.
