    Delbert was a good man, always cheerful and upbeat. He was kind and caring to all – I know he’ll be missed. My condolences to the family.

    Dorthy, so sorry to hear about Henry’s passing. I don’t know if you remember me–we worked at Baldwin together for a short time. I enjoyed getting to know you and Henry and wish we could have visited a whole lot more. I enjoyed listening to him talk about my dad (Lloyd Phelan). Please accept my condolences for you and the family. I know he’ll be missed, but don’t you know there’s a lot of rejoicing going on in heaven at this very moment. Love you– Thelma

    Just want to say to the family that I am praying for your strength to get through this difficult time. But you know with God all things are possible. Just look to him and he will guide you through this. His love and kindness will lift you up and pull you through. We all know where he has gone and that is a comfort in itself. Love to all Linda & Terry Dickard
