Gary, Kelli, Rusty and Robin.
Many fond memories of your Dad when he lived on Kewanna Dr. in Jeffersonville.
Our kids grew up together. Always good for a laugh. May he rest in peace.

I feel VERY fortunate to have met this sweet and kind man at the 503rd Reunion this past September. My Sister and I drove my Mom and Dad from Minnesota to Chattanooga so that they could be there. Delmus was a very gracious Co-host with an incredible sense of humor and he went out of his way to welcome my Sister and I into the "503rd Family". My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Judy, I am so sorry to hear about Delmus. I remember before you and Delmus got married. In fact, you will probably remember the time that he came up to me at a Nashville Shags! dance, and asked who that pretty girl was that I had been talking to earlier, and that he wanted to meet her. Of course, that was you. I introduced you two and it went from there. Seems it turned out to be a very good relationship. I'm so sorry that I won't be able to attend the funeral, but my thoughts and prayers with be with you.

Judy, my heart goes out to you and your family. I can't tell you how it saddened me to hear of Del's passing. He always brightened my day so much when he came by the barber shop, and I had really missed him in the past months.
