    Delbert was an awesome person and I will miss him. We used to go mudding on the weekends just South of Highway 7 and he was always a fun person with a cigar in one hand and a beer in the other. I remembered back in 1933 or 34 Delbert and I were riding our bicycles when the handlebar fell off his bike and he crashed into a river. LOL, he was always the class funny guy and always had beer in his Ford truck that leaked so much oil. Oh, 1933 seems like a year ago. How times fly by. Rest in Peace my old buddy.
