Some words from "Creed" on their "Higher" song reminds me of Dale...
When dreaming I'm guided through another world...time and time again...cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place...cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape from the life I live when I'm awake...to the place where blind men see and there is no pain or hurt...to the place where love replaces hate...c'mon let's go there, I want to make my escape...Up high I feel like I'm alive for the very first time...up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams and make them mine...
Dale, we are thankful for all you added to our lives individually, as well as a family. You were a blessing and a treasure!
