Hi Dale!

Thinking of you and Amy and the boys (all four).
Hope things are continuing to improve.

Hey Dale! I hope you're doing better every day over there! It took me some time to read through this thread [and I havent covered it all just yet], but I've got to say- you are a hero.. To be able to survive what you've been through, and to not just 'survive', but rather to pick up momentum again, and keep on going, is simply amazing.

God Bless you buddy, you're in my prayers! I may give you a call later, and pester you some -- if you're still interested in that :)

Has anybody heard from Dale lately? I just looked back and can't see that he has posted in more than 2 years. His mom posted a note to him in March of 2010 but there hasn't been anything since then. I'm hoping he is OK.

I exchanged voice messages with him a couple weeks back. Not sure of any details, but he sounded good.

Hope you and your family are well, Dale.
I think of your story almost every time I ride.
There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said here already,
but appreciate all that you have shared.

This is the first time to look in the Face Plant site. Dale you are an inspiration to me. I pray that all is still well with you. I would love to hear how you are doing. Will keep you and your family in my prayers.
