    My heart goes out to Dale’s mother, Charlotte Joslin. We have you in our prayers. Dale was a good man with a big heart and he will be missed greatly. I’m deeply sorry Charlotte, that you continue to lose your loved ones to these tragic and horrific moments in your life. God has a plan for us all and I am a true believer that every thing happens for a reason. Sometimes you can’t explain or find all the right reasons. Only God has all the answers to all of our questions. Just keep your faith and he will guide you through the plan he has for you.
    R.I.P Dale Joslin

    Dale “Buford”..I love you man. You were more than just a friend, you were part of my family. We had some of the best times at the Trussel fishing, hanging out, getting our 1st tattoos (me, you & Tonya) “the cross”…I just cannot believe you are gone. It hurts me pretty deep. It was a tragic accident, that is all I can say. Till we meet again..my prayers go out to Destiny, Dales Mom and brothers. You will be missed. I love you~

    Dale (Buford), my childhood friend, my dear brother…You were always such a kind, loving, tender hearted spirit. You made people laugh and smile just by simply being yourself. Although we had not spent much time together in our adult years, we always picked up where ever we had left off when we met back-up. You were more than just a friend to me, you were like my brother Dale, and I will never forget you or the great memories we shared. You will be sorely missed my dear friend, my brother. My thoughts and prayers go out to all your loved ones.

    Love always,

    I offer my deepest sympathy to Charlotte, Mike, Danny and Destiny. I don’t even know what to say any more. Its been a rough several years for a lot of us but we all must keep on going that’s what it’s all about making friends cherishing them while they’re here and then remembering them fondly when they are gone. I’m glad I could play a part in your life. I’ll all-ways remember you and Destiny staying at our house when she would come to town. The trips to the parks with the kids and going to the movies with them. The last time you and your mom saw “MO” before he left us was at our store. I was so glad to be part of your life. The kids and I will miss you greatly. All my love to everyone.
