Condolence From: Joe Blum
Condolence: I had Mr. Besse back in 1978-79 at webster jr high, I remember him as being kind and very helpful in class. I'm sad that I never seen him again, after that...the years go by, so quickly. May he rest in peace.

Thoughts, and prayers to his doubt he will be missed but, never forgotten.

God Bless

Condolence From: Dave Sager
Condolence: It had been many years since seeing Dale until I
started getting involved in Powwows in the U.S. I have lived in Canada for a long time.
I was always impressed with his skill, his artistry and his friendliness. He will be missed.
I wish I could have known him longer since renewing my presence in the U.S.
