    Casey,

    I worked as a police officer in Winchester from 1990-1995. I always liked Dalton and I stopped by there through the years even after I had left the Winchester area. We would trade stories as he would ask me what was going on in the Martinsburg area and I would get the latest news about what was going on in Winchester. I will always remember his warm smile and the stories he told so well. I recently went down to Winchester and realized that his store was closed down and thought maybe something had happened to him. He will be missed as a friend and great story teller.
    Thanks for your blog.
    Patrick
