    it is with great sadness that i read of the tragedy within the dalton family. i had the elder john dalton as a teacher at wilbur jr. high school and later was privilaged to work with him for the recreation dept. i remember the two boys and the special bond they had with their father. my heart goes out to the family. may their faith give them strength in this difficult time.

    Hi. My name is Robert Lehner and it is with great emotion that I write this letter. I knew John Sr., Jim, John Jr., Kathy, Peggy and their Mom because I went to school with Jim for 8 years. We were all part of the Our Lady of the Rosary Parish community. I grew up riding bikes, playing in the sand lot baseball park by their home, and being an altar boy with Jim. He was and is a good friend. If there is any one I can help mend or heal please let me know. My dad taught with John elder and thought highly of him. This is posted by
