    So sorry for your loss. It is just heartbreaking. My husband Dave who passed away in September 2016 worked for several years with Dale at Colerain Fire department. He was always happy when he was on squad with Dale because he knew he had a good partner and they had each others back. I'm sure Dave was in heaven waiting for Dale when he entered the golden gates. My prayers and thoughts are with you ,CPD and CFD.
