Celebration of Life – Grandpa Dale 

A little over a month ago we lost one of the greatest men I have had the pleasure to know.  There are a few people in the world that touch your life for different reasons, and leave an indelible mark on your soul.  Grandpa Dale was one of those people.  I met Dale 14 years ago, sitting on his front porch, having a beer and chatting it up with a neighbor on a balmy Friday evening.  I was so very nervous to be there, holding my future husbands hand and wondering how horribly this first meeting was going to go.  By the end of the evening, I knew why Steve cared about this man as much as he did, and why he was so important to him.  And because I loved Steve, I immediately loved Dale.

All of the great traits my husband has, come from Grandpa Dale, his mechanical skills, his work ethic, his love of home and family.  His bond and loyalty, his compassion and even emotional soul, are wound in the upbringing his grandfather and grandmother gave.  His Piss and Vinegar (as both grandpa and my dad would say) come from him as well :). 

As we get ready today to talk about great stories and memories of a wonderful man, I am so thankful for having the small amount of time I was allowed with this beautiful soul. 

Thank you for giving me the most wonderful husband and father, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life and family for the short time we knew each other.  I know we wil see each other again and I am so happy you’ve finally found peace.
