    My heart is completely broken because I did not know until now of Mr. Dale's passing away. He and daddy were very good friends. Mr.Dale and I cried together on the phone when I called to let him know of dad's passing away nearly 2 years ago. I am certain they are having coffee and telling pipeline stories in Heaven with the rest of the old gang up there. God Bless Ms. Wilma and the family
