Hi, Ione and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Del's diagnosis and now his passing. We have such good memories of times when you guys were in Caldwell and then a good visit with you in Nevada. May you be blessed with peace and comfort at this time and know that we are thinking of you with love. Milt and Kathy Christensen

To the Family of Del Bailey, I miss him already and I haven't even seen him in
a great many years. Sorry he had to go so young. Those days in MIA are
well remembered. When he became YM's President, we had to help him know
what was already on the Calendar. After that, we worked together nicely.
We offer our condolences and our sympathy, Virginia and the late Don Manwill.
