Very sorry to hear of Delwood’s passing. Deep sympathy to you Pat and to all the family. My sister Barbara and I missed seeing you two on our last trip through Echo Bay and then lost touch. I have just seen the announcement of Delwood’s death thanks to Facebook! He was a very nice person and we were sorry to miss him. He was our first cousin and his mom was our aunt. We become distant and live separate lives but love remains even through death.May you be comforted by family and by the love of God.
