Our thoughts and prayers are with your family today. Although I did not know him personally, I do know several family members and I want to let them know that we are thinking about them. Michael is my son-in-law and has shared a lot of memories of Delmar with us. I know that it is never easy to lose a love one. Just keep the faith.

Dalmer was so good in assisting and working for my grandfather. He had a very kind heart and a great sense of humor. He will be forever loved.
