    You were always a great guy, a wonderful dad, & very supportive of the Delhi kids, at school & community sports. You were always friendly & helpful. You were good to me, my mom & dad when we’d see you at the baseball games at Shattuck Park. May you Rest in Paradise & keep watch over your wonderful family.
