    So sorry for your loss Todd. I think I met you in my shop one time with your Dad. I sharpen stuff for him. I will really miss seeing him and shooting the Bull with him. Lots of stories between us serving in the Army but in different years. Dale was one of a kind that you knew where he stood. He felt like a brother to me. God Bless.
