To all the Copegog and Partridge families, and to all who knew Dale, I send my deep condolences and prayers. I am deeply saddened to hear that Dale has entered the Western Door. She was a person I admired for her humour, her commitment to the community, and for her down-to-earth approach to things. She had courage and a deep love for what she did and who she served. She will be deeply missed; she has left her mark on so many of us. Travel well, Dale.

My condolences on your loss of you beautiful Dale. I had many wonderful moments with Dale during my years serving the people of Wasauksing. It was my observation that Dale was a true leader and caregiver of the people of Wasauksing. I witnessed her compassion, love and caring for all. I have little doubt that she will be missed by all. Had I known of her passing sooner I would have been their to support her send off. She is in my prayers as her spirit journeys now. Ed
