Uncle Delbert, The one time I met you a few years ago I knew you were a great man, a great brother to your sister, my mother (Mary Ellen) and a loving soul to the rest of the family. I only wish I could have spent more time with that side of the family. I am saddened by your passing but I know you are in a beautiful place now. And when you meet your sister, my mother (Mary Ellen) there, please tell her you met me and that I love her and rejoice in the time I will be with her again. I love you both.

I miss you dad. You taught me so much, perseverance, stand up for myself & what is right. How to punch someone without hurting my hand, to tie my shoes& so much more. I can't believe you're gone. Love you : ),
