Dear Family:

Would be there for you but my back where it was broken is giving me fits and I can't walk or stand too long.
I have wonderful memories of both your Dad and Mom. We spent many a weekend grilling out and making homemade ice cream together.Then strawberries came in season we dug our freezer out and we went all summer long.

Dale has led a remarkable life and a long one too. Oh, the stories he could tell. He was so laid back most of the time no wonder he aged well.

I know you all will miss him and you have great memories of him to recall.When I saw his full name on the obituary I had to smile as when Faye was aggrevated with him she always called him Dale Courtwight.I can still hear her. I miss her still.
