One of my greatest fears in life is not having anyone by my side when it's my time to go; it's sad to think about anyone being alone as they're passing on to the other side.

Which is why we need to help Dale Dawson. You may have seen his photo circulating on Facebook over the weekend and after doing some research, it appears that his family has yet to be located.

Here's what we know about Dale: he's currently in ICU after falling and suffering from severe head trauma; there's no record of his family in the San Diego area, which is where he is now.

I've reached out to Shelley Griffin, the woman who shared his photos on Facebook, asking for more information. How is she connected to Dale? How does she know about his connection to Rockford?

Until I get more answers, can you please pass this along. There's no saying how much time Dale has left.
