My sincere condolences to the Sumsion family. Through Jake, we got to know Dale a little and liked and respected him. I hope sincerely that the good memories help you in dealing with this loss.
We love Dale and he will be missed. He has always been kind, generous, and fun. We still have a beautiful picture of our Savior that was gifted to us by Dale when he was our home teacher. Our heartfelt sympathies to Ilene and children for their loss.
Dale, truly my favorite cousin! Thanks for all you did during my hardest times. You will be so missed… be sure to tell my mom “hi.”
So sorry to hear about Dales passing he will truly be missed. I have many good memories of him and his family.
Dale was such a wonderful and humble man, always wanting to make others happy and was willing to help in any way he could. We love him and Ilene very much. They have been our great friends for about thirty years. They have helped us in many ways.
Our home is filled with their love–through gifts given to us over the years, including beautiful photos of Jesus, beautiful forever flowers in lovely vases, etc.
We are available to be of help to Ilene and her family whom we love. We pray that they will be blessed with God’s great love, comfort, and peace.
