Dale - you always made me smile! We never got to see each other much because we lived in different parts of the country. That does not change the fact that you hold a special place in my heart.

David, Mary & Karen - So sorry Dale is gone. This was his time. He lived a wonderful, full life surround by his family that loved him. He loved living on the farm. And he love his dog! He is in a better place now, and he can hang out with Aunt Marcella and eat what ever wants. She will see to it.
Love you guys!

My condolences to the Long family.  It is never easy to accept one who was once a part of our adventure in life is no longer here with us in the flesh.  But we can rest assure although he is only sleeping for a while, Jesus said all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice during the resurrection will rise again.  (John 5:28-29)  May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time.
