    When we were visiting our mother at the local nursing home, Dale and his pup were often there, alongside his sister Julie, visiting their mom. We'd all be wheeling our moms outside in good weather and we shared both pleasantries and worries. Dale was sweet and gentle and so devoted to his mom. I will always remember him for this devotion and his gentleness. May he rest in peace — Sue Smith
