    I am sorry for your loss. I had known Del for only six years, but he was a man you loved instantly. The world has lost a wonderful person.

    Glenna, I wanted to express my sympathy for the loss of your Dad. I am so sorry. You are too young to lose a parent and I understand how hard that can be. I remember you as a little girl when you and Shauna used to hang out. Hang in there, Glenna. It does get easier to bear. I wish you peace. ~Leslie
