The family is in our thoughts and prayers and I hope the best for the family and I think the scripture at Acts 17:31 will comfort you.

John and I were sorry to hear of Del's passing. You two were among our first friends when we moved up north. We will always remember him and the good times we had as a group in Florida. We will keep you in our parayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Del's passing. He and I were classmates in Paw Paw, MI, graduating in 1951. I knew he would be an Engineer, because he was so technically minded.

I will pass the obit along to those of us still in Paw Paw at our monthly luncheon.
