What a wonderful outpouring of love for Aunty Dale throughout the service which Rosalind and watched on video, having been confined to Sydney by Covid.
Aunty Dale's farm ( with Uncle George ) was one of the Parkes sisters' homes where I was always welcomed during school hoildays and I will treasure those years and memories from such times that seem like yesterday.
Warm but direct, decisive and understanding and so willing to make allowances for growing up youngsters with a no-nonsense attitude are just some of her character attributes that I so fondly remember.
We saw each rarely over the subsequent years, ( mainly to my being overseas), and I last saw her in Ngaere walking up Finnerty Rd where Rosalind and I had tea at her home; sha was as bright as ever and just like I always remembered her.
Cheerful, caring, loving and my Aunty Dale.

I recently received the sad news Dale Walsh's passing.
It was always a delight talking with her.
A more kinder, gentler person you never meet. A real lady.
Dale had a wonderful sense of humor.
I always came away with a simle after talking with her.
My condolences to her family. I'll always have fond memories of my time in New Zealand thanks to likes of her. Rest in peace "Dub".
