I am saddened to hear of the loss of a former co-worker. I worked in the business office at CMH same time as Dale. He was a dedicated maintenance man and we could always share a laugh or two. My sincere sympathy to all of you. I'm sorry I won't be able to come to the visitation as my husband and I are both in Rochester now staying at the Gift of Life Transplant house. Our prayers are with you. May he rest in peace.

Does Jesus care when I've said "good-bye"
To the dearest on earth to me,
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks--
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?

O yes, He cares,
I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief.
When the days are weary,
the long nights dreary, I know my Saviour cares.
--Frank E. Graeff
