We will miss Delbert. He was a good, good person who loved life and family. We were welcomed into this family 10 years ago when our daughter, Evan, married Gavin Robertson. After sharing Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July holidays and numerous other special occasions with this close-knit clan, we are so thankful that our grandkids carry the DNA of these intelligent, adorable, people. Delbert attained the devotion and love of all who knew him as a man with true grit and integrity. We are so happy that he touched and embellished our lives, creating a presence within us that death cannot diminish.

To all-of-the family, especially Mary I say my best-advice after 18-years of widowhood is cling tightly to our Lord's unfailing and unchanging hands. He never will fail to be right there to see you through whatever this crazy-world brings you. Keep the close-knit family heritage you have and help each-other through. My prayers are going across-the-way from Stillwater to each. I will not tell you it is or will be easy but these-things will ease the load.
