Dale and Sheila left behind 4 children. At the time of the crash their ages were: Andrea 11, Robin 9, Karla 6 and Bryce 4.
This was the 2nd time this driver had been arrested for impaired driving. This time he received a 3-year sentence and 10 years prohibition from driving. This was a plea bargain.

There isn’t a day that goes by any of us don’t think of you both. I cannot erase the memory of that early morning when the police came to tell me you two were killed, I cannot erase the memory of having to break the news to our brother and his wife first, then Mom and Dad, and then, last but not least, your beloved children.
Memories are what we all have of both of you. Many, many wonderful memories and one nightmare memory that haunts me.
When I watch the children, every once and a while, I catch glimpses of the two of you in them and then I remember how full of life you were and the love you had for all of us. You lived your lives the best way any of us could have wished to live. But, it was too short.
We have all carried on even though none of us thought it was possible without you. But we carry on because we know that’s what you wanted, we carry on for your children and ours. We carry on because we love you. In life you showed us laughter, love, courage, compassion, zest for life, faith. We all miss you every day. I miss you, I miss our talks, the plans we made, I miss my hero. We carry on for you! You’d be so proud of your children!!!
