Dear Dileo Family,
You most likely have never met me are know of me, but your father / husband and I met in college and went into coaching. I was at Covington when I started and we always met up at the yearly coaching clinics. We coached against each other a few times and always had a great laugh and talk after no matter who won or lost. In fact I have no idea who won or last lost between us. He was just a wonderful friend and I’m so mad that I did not do a better job of staying in contact when I left coaching 20+ years ago. I’m so sad to hear of your loss. He was one of the truly great people I have had the pleasure of getting to know in my lifetime. Please know the Allbritton Family has you all in our prayers and thoughts. God Bless!
