Delmar, I was so sorry to see that your mom had passed. I have such fond memories of her. She was such a wonderful lady! When I was in college, she gave a recommendation for me to join a sorority (I didn’t last long! Ha!) then later I worked with her as a travel agent. What a wonderful lady! She was very proud of you! I’m so sorry for your loss!

My heart is saddened by the loss of your Mom. We shared 9 wonderful years together in the travel industry. She was my mentor and “teacher” in the business. We traveled together once as travel agents, to Vancouver, BC. It was a fun time.
I’m sending this now as I am unable to attend her service. We are having family visit this weekend. But know you and your family will be in my prayers, as will your Mother.
God bless you all.
