  1. Dear Denise, Ebony and Bronte and family, I am sorry I will be unable to attend Dales funeral this week.
    It was lovely to see Bronte’s wedding video with Dale walking her down the aisle and the father and daughter dance :)
    He was so proud of both the girls. ( whom I haven’t seen in a long time) He was also a pround grandfather :)

    Denise I remember the night I got a phone call from Dr Michael Laver at 2am when I was up breastfeeding Mitch born 4/11/1992 so not sure if it was 1992 or early 1993 to ask if I had another phone number for Dale as I was the DATA secretary at the time as RMH had rang to say they had a kidney for Dale and did I have another phone number for him?
    I think you were in Charlton or somewhere on the way to an appointment in Melbourne anyway
    I was so excited as My Dad had his transplant in Sept 1992 at RMH as well.
    I haven’t been on touch with local DATA since my Dad passed away.
    However I thought of Dale often and he was always so friendly and happy to help, I remember him changing jobs as did Dad to avoid skin cancer as a result of the immune suppressing drugs.
    I wish you all well and safe journey Dale to a pain free place.
    Love Karen Bulman xxxx
