Sending my love and condolence to Dague Family.
My Dear Friend Jim will be missed

I am sorry to hear of his passing. I had Mr. Dague as a teacher when I was in the 5th grade. He was great, first time many of us had the opportunity to eat different "food" from other countries, also making the USA out of paper mache onto plywood. He loved his students and will be missed.
