Dear Bonnie, Robert & Family,
Our hearts are deeply saddened upon just learning about the loss of Streamline. He was truly a "one of a kind"--when Streamline walked into a room, everyone smiled.
His "dash"* through life will long be remembered by all who knew & loved him.
* Poem, "The Dash" by Linda Ellis
My deepest condolences to your family. Mr Sale was a pillar in the Lakeland Insurance market. He was always upbbeat when I would see him. I loved his sense of humor. Really a terrific person. I know all who knew him will miss him greatly. Your family is in my prayers...
Dear Greg and Family, Words cannot begin to express our sorrow for the loss of your father. We pray that your memories give you strength during this time. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Rick and Pam
Trudy and our family were lucky to have Streamline as a friend. We loved his smile and warmth. Our prayers are with Bonnie and the Sale family.
Dear Bonnie and Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy along with Fred's on Streamline's death. We were stunned to hear that he had died as we are a little behind the news up here, but we will be praying for you this afternoon and pray that The Lord will hold each of you extra close in the days to come.
Streamline was always such a gentleman and so sweet, and his contribution to Lakeland helped make it the super place it is to live. What a great, great man he was, and what a marvelous legacy he has passed on to his children and their children. My heart goes out to each of you and especially to his precious Bonnie. I hope you know you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Our prayers are with the family at this time of sadness.
My sympathy to the entire family
I have so many happy memories - most from Daytona! Mr. Sale was always smiling - his warmth was genuine and he never met a stranger. Thank you for sharing Streamline - I am so blessed to have known him. May your sadness be lifted by the joy he has brought to so many of us!
Thoughts and prayers go out to Greg and his family.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Sale family. Robert, Allen and Greg, your Dad was always so nice to me whenever I saw him and I will never forget his smiling face. I always admired your Dad. Keep strong in your faith.
Prayers go out to you Robert during this difficult time. So sorry for your loss.
I too attended John Cox in the early '40s and first recall Streamline as a talented "diver" at the "above ground" Lakeland Swimming pool north of John Cox. His parents and my grandmother "Emma Bailey" who lived on Plum Street off of Mass. Ave. were close friends. My prayers are with the Sale family during this time of loss. Lakeland has lost a talented and dedicated citizen and family man.
Dear Sale Family,
My parents cherished their friendship with "Streamline" and Bonnie, and I had the pleasure of meeting Robert and Brittany at the Polk Museum Of Art and we exchanged stories of our parents' friendship.
Please accept my condlolences as I am out of town and unable to convey them in person at the funeral at St. David's.

The first time I met Stream I was 6 & my dad took me to "the office". As I looked looked up I said "hi ya frankenstein" as I had never seen anyone so tall! I spent the rest of the visit in my dad's car with a sore behind! A true Lakeland Icon. Our prayers & Love. Paul & Darcy Fike
Certainly the end of an era! He will be sorely missed by his community, his many, many friends of which I count myself one, and his much loved family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
