Not sure what to say?

The weather turned unusually clear and dry during Christmas week of 2011 and I was able to get to Falls Village Ct to the childhood home of his fiancée Lori for a couple days. It just so happened that we were all free to gather there for the Holiday for the first time since I could remember. I had not heard from Lori in a while and was surprised to hear she was engaged and was happy that she had found someone after all this time. On first impression one could be forgiven for mistaking Dale...

Here's a picture of Dale, myself, Darlene Russell and Steve Ayer with Connie Chung in Bangor. Thought I'd share...

Just learned of Dale's passing tonight. He was one of my classmates from my NESCom Class of '86 (known back then as the New England School of Broadcasting). Dale was 12-13 years older than most of us other "NESBies," and a some of us nicknamed him "Dad." He was a very easygoing guy and a lot of fun. I hadn't seen him in many years, but he'll be missed. R.I.P. Dale, wherever you are...

So sorry to hear about Dale. He was great fun at WABI. Dianne Berry

So sorry to hear about Dale's passing. I haven't seen him in many many years, but he was my very first boyfriend, back when he used to ride in clothes dryers at the laundrymart and he gave me my first kiss at Hersey Retreat. Fond memories of a really nice person.

Joelle, Lora and Little Dale,
We're so sorry about your dad. Losing a parent is a hard thing to deal with. Hang onto the good memories. We're thinking of you and sending hugs.
Love, Aunt Angeli & Uncle Mark
