To Sarah, Anna, Rebecca, Jessica and families and Mr. Ausborn: Dale was a special person - a true gentleman loyal to his family and to his country. His sterling reputation preceded him. Much sympathy to Sarah and daughters, Dale's Dad, and all who knew Dale and appreciated him. He will not be forgotten.
