  7. Man it's been a long time since I'd seen the whole fam I use to kick it with holly his sister My deepest thoughts n condolences to the family n friends

  8. My heart goes out to all of Dales children, to his family, and to all of us, that loved him . Dale was a kind hearted, level headed man, that preferred talking out issues, oppose to violence. Anybody that knew Dale, knew they had a friend. Dale was part of my family for 11 or so years. and was always the courteous friendly Dale. To all of you that he gave advise, please remember the words.To all of you that got that last hug, cherish it. To all of you that laughed at something funny Dale said, remember the laughter. Dale will be forever missed by his, mine, and all families, in which whose hearts Dale has touched. We have lost a peacemaker. The Dale I know would want us all to come together in peace, so that we all in our own right, have the stance to say goodbye to a dear friend, and loved one. Everyone please come together for Dale. This is indeed what HE would have wanted. And we pray for the future happiness, and well being of his children, as they are his legacy
