I was very sorry to hear of Delmus' death. My memories of Dilmus go back to Siloam Elementary School and when we were neighbors just south of Siloam. I remember as boys we collected pine cones which we sold to the Forestry Dept. for their seeds.
The Bible gives us hope and comfort when it states, "there is going to be a resurrection."--
Acts 24:15
