I haven’t seen any of you Delaneys in years, but I have fond memories of times spent with Uncle Joe & Aunt Ruby, Tommy, Norman, Katie & Gail. There are probably more of you that I can’t remember now. I remember lots of laughter, friendly bantering, good meals & true family connections. I know this has to be a great loss to all of you. My prayers & thoughts are with y’all.
