Dale was my brother...we are missing him deeply. It's so hard everywhere we go some sort of memorial plaque is on a bar-top or engraved into a chair...so many people in a country of millions know him and can't believe anyone would hurt him.
In the last two days I have been told of his tough exterior (that was Dale) One elderly man who owns a large business here came up to me and was so sad he just went through heart surgery and Dale had sent flowers to the hospital for him. He just said why him. His tears started and he walked away. Another person said there was a dog that was dropped off at the Vet and no one to pay for its care. He said to do what you have to save the dog and he paid the bill.
Many tears have flowed with many people, today was a song that came on WINDS OF CHANGE...it seemed like a message...who knows. The words sure fit...like he is ok. I so hope his soul is free. He did not deserve the fate he met. It`s so soul crushing that his kindness and generosity was taken advantage of.

I did see your name in his contacts...had a big list. I was looking for a guy??
I created this e-mail acct. for him many years ago so he would always have access. He never changed the password so now it has come in handy as far as info gathering and sweet words to his wife! I have a myspace and facebook so I am easy to find. I will be creating a memorial page for Dale as well. Just home a couple of days ago so still trying to sort out legalities. Things are coming together. Richard will fly home next week and then we will prepare to go back to Thailand for court in about a month.
