Dear Tiffany and friends/family of Dale Ann;

I cannot even imagine the pain and loneliness you must be feeling at this time. When my mother called and told me that Dale had passed, I just couldn’t believe it. She was taken so early, but she left a lasting impression on her family and friends. I don’t remember a time that Dale didn’t have a smile. She always laughed and made the best of life. She was a rock when we lost John, Margaret, and Johnny Gene. She was one that could always be counted on. I know she will be remembered by her family and friends. It has been a shock to us all, but even more so for Tiffany and Maya. She was a wonderful person, a great friend, and an integral part in the lives of her family. I know I will never forget her and I pray that God holds the family in His arms and guides them through this most difficult time.

The one thing you must remember, Tiffany, is that you will always have your memories. Your mom will be watching over you and Maya. Always keep your mom’s memories alive, and tell family stories to Maya so that she never forgets her grandmother.

I will always remember my cousin, Dale Ann. She will be greatly missed and always loved.

God Bless you, Tiffany and Maya. I know Dale would want you to continue on and remember the wonderful times you had together.

Love from your cousin,
Jennifer Tieperman Benavidez

Dale was a wonderful lady. She had a way of making me smile. When we first met she had the cutiest brown eyed girl, Tiffany. Tiffany I am so sorry for your loss. She will be missed by many and I am sure she will be missed the most by you and Mya. Last time I visited with Dale was at a ball game of Mya’s. She was such a proud grandma and was also very proud of you Tiffany. Just know that we are praying for your family during this time of sorrow!
