    I was so sad to hear about Dale’s passing. And I’m especially sad for Terri, and the rest of Dale’s family.
    I’m glad I got to spend some time with him a few weeks ago when I was visiting him and Terri.

    He will be missed.

  3. Terri & Anthony & Family — We are so sorry we can’t be with you all today to remember and celebrate a very special person and cousin. The weather and the distance is just too challenging today, but we are with you in spirit and sympathy–sending you our prayers and blessings. How sad it is to lose such a special, kind and talented person so tragically. We will remember him always. Don, Elaine, Cari & Jason & Aunt Eva (Puyallup)

    Sincere condolences go out to Terri, Anthony and the rest of the Schmidt clan. Dale and his family always made me feel a part of their family. I savor the memories of time spent with Dale. 100’s of hours jamming in his basement. Laughing hysterically on school band or choir trips, kibitzing about Grizzly football. Getting together for a beer on Veteran’s Day and D-Day anniversaries to honor our fathers. I loved singing and playing with Dale and took it for granted and really never stayed with it much. I have missed it ever since. We shared some of the most cherished memories of my life and I will always be grateful for having Dale including me as one of his friends.
    Thanks for memories and the love Dale. We will meet again…but not yet.

    I am very sorry to hear of you loss and wish to share with you a scripture at John 5: 28, 29, which states in part, that “all in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”, yes a resurrection to life. May it be that the “peace of God that excels all thought . . . guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.(Phil. 4:7) The Bible gives hope, a resurrection hope, for our love ones. John 5:28, 29 states that “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. This is a sure hope, a real hope, that I too look forward.Please take care of yourselves, and each other. I Love you, but Jehovah loves you more.
