Kate and family, I just learned of Dallas passing. I am sorry. I have memories as a young girl coming to stay with you in the summers and the trip we made to California and Grand Canyon....playing pitch and eating ribs. We would take food out to the fields to feed Dallas while he worked harvesting and planting crops. Those memories will always be with me. I know you will miss him very much.
