God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon his earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He saw the road was getting tough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

My former co worker and friend. I’m just finding out. 1/26/23. Dale was more than this page can hold. He was a Great provider to the children he raised and nurterer. I met Dale at JC Penny after Hurricane Katrina and my greatest memory is the jokes he would tell. I always admired his silver rings he wore. The way he spoke and carried himself was classic. I miss hearing his voice echoing from the salon when I occasionally walk by from time to time. God bless the family and I Pray he is walking the golden streets in Heaven. Amen.
RIP my wonderful friend! You will be missed by so many. Heaven just got a little spicier! Love and prayers to the family, Karen Rodgers
Heaven gained another angel. Dale is with his momma who he adored, but the selfish part of me is so sad. We all loved him so much in the salon and his great cooking recipes. The wonderful stories of his interesting life as a hair stylist and his amazing talent. Go fly high Dale we will meet again one day. Love and prayers for all of you. Kim
