Sorry so hear of your great loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Ernestine and Larry. I will make effort to be at the visitation, if at all possible. Losing a child must be the worst experience of a parent's life. God loves you and so do I. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Growing up on Sandpiper Rd. on the Island was never dull. You could ALWAYS count on hearing the scream of Dale’s dirt bike as it flew down Bobwhite from his house on Walthour. He and Ross Henderson constantly back and forth between their houses ALWAYS “”tinkering” with something that went fast!!!! Those were the best days. I know you will miss him terribly but I have no doubt he’s testing out the golden roads of heaven on his dream bike with a huge grin on his face. Praying

Dale I lived not far from growing up on the island and met him at work 2001 and our friend Tommy. Dale was funny to be around at work making us all laugh or talking about dirt bikes etc…worked many mornings in the port pulling boxes with Dale/Tommy having a good time doing it. Prayers to all of the Waters family. Tommy and I will think of you cruising that grey shaker in town my friend! 10/4
