  3. I was looking up some ancestry information. I was friends with James Ray and met Dale and Delores through him. Great people!

  4. Omg I have thought of her and dale for 14 yrs. They baby sat my boys as babies till school age. Dale was a great guy and laughed hard and loud happy voice. Delores was loving and loved buying dolls. They both came to my wedding and babysat my children at my wedding and reception in 1999. I’ve always thought about them numerous times after. And just saw this that they both passed away. Dale always called my youngest son pee went. He would be happy to know that both of my sons are 24 and 22 now. My 22 year-old is a plumber. And pee went they called which his real name is Jordan is a deputy sheriff in California with me. They loved my boys so much. Im sad to see they both past. Delores and Dale used to say that the kids can call him Grandma and Grandpa. They were really great people who I trusted and I thought was family.
