I'm so sorry for your loss! Del was a wonderful man and, yes, a great story writer. I have a small collection of his stories in our family history which is also in the state archives for future generations. He was really wonderful but his kindness and his stories live on. Best, Nan (Amelia's sister Nan is my grandmother)
