    I just want to say that Dale was one of those ‘Good Guys’ that don’t come around too often, he was good-hearted, and treated people right…can’t imagine what Thursdays will be like now, it used to be a highlight of my week to go in his store, and buy things, and just hang around and talk…I mentioned to someone that now I look around my house, and feel like a part of him is here, my house is literally ‘furnished by Dale’ – will never forget him, Ever… Glad I was fortunate enough to know him….Sure gonna miss him…he seemed more like a ‘Favorite Uncle’ than anything else….:(

    The town of Ogilvie won’t be the same without Dale running the Used A Bit store. It was an adventure to walk through the store aisles and see what came in new from week to week. And Dale was always willing to chat! He was a good neighbor. I will certainly miss him. Tedi Schmoll

    I didn’t know Dale very well but I just wanted to say when I went into his store in Ogilvie he was always a very nice man and if I had my grandchildren with he would usually let them have a small toy “no charge”. He just seemed like a good man.
