Hi, Dick Dale music lovers.

Although the photo attached to this campaign is not me, it is Dick's friend since 1960 and my very special friend since I've been married to Dick who was with me on that dark Saturday night a few days ago when the love of my life left this earth. 

To say the least, I am devastated beyond words and for that reason I have reached out to my dear comprade Joey Geeee, as Dick fondly called him for almost sixty t to help me raise funds for a memorial and funeral service for Dick.

Time is being needlessly wasted because of the legions of fraudsters on the Internet who prey on the public via the Internet: This is for real. Log onto my Facebook account to verify if anyone is concerned.

Each time a contribution is reported, I will acknowledge receipt of it on my FB page. Does that help clear any doubt anyone has that this campaign is for real?

As many of Dick's fans now know, Dale passed away late Saturday night, coincidentally about the same time he would have been ending one of the thousands of shows he performed at since 1955.

Because of laws that govern burials, I was left with a limited amount of time (days-not weeks) to find a suitable place for Dick's new home.

On Sunday afternoon, Joey and I found just the place where Dick Dale music lovers could visit, sit under the shade of a tree and strum their guitars, strike up a conversation, but to fund that site I was faced with an expense of over $55,000.00 and that does not even cover medical expenses. 

Dick was hospitalized for the past thirty days, often under intensive care. 

Like many performers from the mid fifties, when Dick began his career, travel expenses touring consumes most of the pay received, so, at this time in Dick's career, being very sill, he was unable to tour much.

Compounding that predicament, because of the advent of Napster and other media where people can upload music for free, entertainers royalties from music composed was reduced to pennies.

As stated above, I am not only devistated by my husbands death, but I am faced with a very short period of time to obtain funds which I do not have, to purchase the grave site mentioned above, a place Dick deserves for all the joy he brought to thousands of fans since 1955, the past fifteen years while he was severely ill.

I am personally reaching out to you for help. I need to complete this campaing in days not weeks. Please, please help Dick.

I will personally thank every person who contributes to this fund, no matter the amount.

Please feel free to reach out to me personally, Lana Dale on FB or Joey.
