Phil, I just today received this email regarding Layne's passing back in March 2019. Am so very sorry to hear of this and my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. I remember the great times we had in Richardson with you and the family and think of those days often. Our Navy reserve days are remembered and treasured. Pray that you have God's speed, fair winds, and a following sea.

Deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Nancy Elaine Slough on behalf of Delta Golden Wings (DGW), a fraternity of retired and active pilots. 'Layne' was the spouse of Captain Phil Slough, and she was his partner in life for almost 55 years. She maintained the family home and raised their children through long days of separation while Phil was on trips or engaged in training. We recognize that none of us who have had happy careers as Delta pilots could have done it without the love, understanding, and patience of our spouses. We appreciate Layne's gift, and we share the grief of her family's loss.

Phil, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your spouse Nancy. Although I never had the chance to meet her, I am sure her presence will be missed a great deal. I remember knowing you and really enjoying your friendship while flying for Delta and also in the Navy Reserves. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.
