Hold on to the beautiful life you shared while he was on this earth. Madeline, remember how much he loved you and he will live forever in your heart.
Love and prayers,
We are so truly sorry to hear of Delbert's passing. I only wish we would have taken more time to have gotten to know one another as neighbours. You both were always so kind to us. Kids will always remember his shiny truck, the bag of Skittles, the treats at Halloween and the soccer balls Delbert gave to our son, Sebastien.
Always here for you! You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love, Lynn, Patrick and kids💗
