Brenda- so sorry to hear of your father passing.

Uncle Delbert was always so good to me and he loved to tease me and play jokes but never in cruel way but in a loving way. He sure mae me laugh and he loved to laugh too.I respected him and his devotion to God and his family. I am deeply saddened about his passing but as I told someone yesterday, I know for certain the first thing he heard from the Master was "well done, my faithful servant." My love and prayers to my family in T-Ville.

Love this picture! I was just a little girl when they married, just youngsters themselves but have always admired their devotion to each other and their family. Such memories, I remember carrying Brenda around on my hip when she was just a baby. Such a loss. He was also one of the funniest men I've ever known and loved to catch you in a joke. Most importantly however, he was a churchmans churchman. I know our Lord and Savior welcomed him with open arms and lovingly cradles him there. My sincerest sympathies and prayers for peace and comfort to his loving family. Nancy
