Jerry and I were so very sorry to hear of Del’s passing. Yes, he was one of a kind for sure. I remember how he would jump OVER the defenders when he was carrying the ball in for a touchdown!! He was a sweet guy and so full of life. Jerry talks about how much he enjoyed fishing and hunting with Del and all their shared beagle dogs many, many years ago.
We are thinking of you, Kaye, with love and prayers for your peace.
Mrs Kaye and family, Mr Del will be missed dearly. He maybe gone from our sites, but never from our hearts.. Our prayers are with you during this time of sorrow and may God give you comfort.
Kaye, I just found Del’s obituary in the Sunday’s paper. When we were little kids, my grandparents lived catacornered to the Stocks home, we played together before we went to grade school. Brought back a life time of memories. After Hazen School, we saw each other infrequently, but he was always my friend. I know you will miss him, maybe down the road we will all be together again. Prankster he was.
