My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Delbert spent a lot of time at our house with granddaddy when we were growing up. It has always touched our hearts that he named his son after our granddaddy John Lee, he would have been so proud of the man Delbert turned into. They are together once again and for this I rejoice.
