Karen, I’m so very sorry to hear about Del. We enjoyed our outings with both of you & our drives to get something to eat. Occasionally he would ride with us to see Christmas lights. Love & hugs to you dear friend!!

I am so sorry about Del. I often remember the time you and your mom and dad came to visit us and my brother Bill was here. We had a great time going to Tombstone. I think of that time often. May God give you peace and comfort as only He can. I love you.
