I was very sorry to learn of your wife's passing from Mark Eikenberry.  Things just aren't the same at Federated without the occasional call from you.
I wanted to take a moment to express my condolences and let you know my thoughts are with you.

Delbert, It's not easy to lose your wife. I was told there would be lots of tears and they were right. Don't hold them back, let them go. If you need some one to talk to, just call.

Mike and family,
Our sympathy is with you during this difficult time. Your Mom's smile and good conversation will be remembered from the last time we visited with her at the Wayne County livestock show 3 years ago.    Hope to visit with you this summer when we are back in Indiana.
