    Dear Yvonne. Dorothy, Karen, Keith and Debra
    I am so sad to hear of Dales passing he was my cousin, double cousins to be exact. He was always the quiet one much like his father Clifford and he was a little overshadowed by being born 3 months after the twins in attention, but I always thought he was handsome and under all that quiet demeanor very smart. He just did what needed to be done and didn’t announce it to the world. After reviewing his obit he lived a life of service and faithfulness to his wife and family. A cousin I will have good memories of and am sorry for Yvonne and his family. Kathleen and Bill Taylor
