I was saddened to hear of the death of popular author Debbie Macomber’s son, Dale.  My thoughts and prayers are with Debbie and her family.  Debbie’s publicist, Nancy Berland  sent this statement.

Renowned author Debbie Macomber and her family will celebrate the life of her beloved younger son, Dale, Tuesday morning at a memorial service in Port Orchard, Washington.

A dedicated father of two young boys, a gifted teacher and award-winning distance runner, Dale Macomber, 36, lost his battle with illness August 9. His body was discovered by his brother, Ted, and local police, after the authorities were alerted by family members concerned about Dale’s apparently serious despondency. A poignant obituary written by Ted can be found here.

Early on Dale developed a caring nature for those with special needs. Fittingly, his family suggests, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Special Olympics Washington for those wishing to express condolence for their tragic loss. Donations can by contacting the organization via their website,  or via postal mail  to 1809 7th Ave Ste 1509, Seattle, WA 98101. Those wishing to send Debbie and her husband, Wayne, condolence messages may do so via the guestbook on her website, or via mail to P.O. Box 1458, Port Orchard, WA, 98366.

Hundreds of people have shared loving memories of Dale on a Facebook page established by the Macomber family for this purpose: “Remembering Dale Macomber.” He was a bright, joyful young man who will be missed greatly by all who knew him.

Bottom Line: Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”  ~From a headstone in Ireland
