I am Dale Anderson III mother. To this day I still can't believe my baby boy is gone. I try not to think about it. But when Thursdays' come and I don't hear him coming into my door. I fast forward to that early morning when I got that phone call. I try not to be angry, but I am. It hurts so bad. People say remember the good times. Remember the good times HURT. Because all I can think about is that he wouldn't get to create anymore good time for me. His mom to see. He lost his dad Jan. 2011 and his grandfather 2014.  I miss you so much my love. 

To Dales Mother- I do not know you, I did not know your son either- but I saw your post and just wanted you to know that someone out there in the world is praying for you and that I understand good time thoughts do hurt. I am so sorry for your loss. I am a mom too. You are so strong to post when you hurt so much. There is not much else I can say- except I think u are atrong just for facing another day. I hope u find a small bit of comfort knowing that your son is not forgotten by the world. My husband and I ride bikes. I will not forget Dale or your grief. Goodbye.  

What happened to the Dwi driver? Did he get jail time?
