In Remembrance of Dale

1960 - 2013

Dale, 

The pain of losing you almost swept me away, crushed under the enormous waves of grief and despair. I could not believe or accept you were really gone. But gone only meant from this physical world. You have been by my side teaching me how to ride the waves. I have felt you every step of the way, healing as I have healed.  Thank you for teaching me what it means to have compassion...compassion for myself and others. Thank you for teaching me that finding the love deep within us is the "whole point". I finally found you. I love you Dale Man.

In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.
