Visiting in Osceola with his family on Sunday, April 13, 1952, Dale wrote, “Dalene went to Sunday School with Susan. We drove home to Muscatine, had dinner in Oskaloosa, also a flat tire. Home at 5 p.m. and glad of it. Snow and rain all day.” Susan Kimmel was Dalene’s cousin. Oskaloosa is roughly halfway between Osceola and Muscatine.
