  1. Dear Wanda and Family, Our deepest condolences to all of you at the loss of Dale. It was our great pleasure to get to know him and Wanda as we bowled together on the Senior League the past two years. We remember his quiet, gentle demeanor and his always present smile. May your faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, carry you all through this tragic and trying time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

    Most Sincerely,

    Bob & Maureen Best, Chatham

  2. Wanda, I was shocked to read about Dale in the paper tonight. I am sorry that I was unable to come. tonight. I know that Dale will be missed by everyone.

  3. Dear Wanda, We were so sorry to read about Dale’s passing. We really enjoyed our square dancing times with you. We will keep you in our prayers.

  4. Miss Wanda, I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dale. Sadly, since Grandma Elizabeth passed I have had little contact with the Nolting side of the family. I do have fond memories of you and Dale. You were always so nice to be around. I know now that was the light of our Savior Jesus Christ shining through. As a little boy, I did not know of his service to our nation. It’s people like you and Dale that weave together the moral fabric of this nation and make each day that God gives us worth living. God’s blessings pour out on you and your family.

  5. Wanda and Family: So sorry to read about Dale. I get the Petersburg Observer but it comes about a week behind here in Arkansas. Dale was a wonderful husband and father and I know you will all miss him terribly. He was always so nice to me, but the outstanding thing which I will remember about him was his gentleness. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless You in the weeks and months ahead. Lynne Dearing
