Delbert and Lillian were a dear brother and sister in Christ. Their love for the Lord was a witness to all those who knew them. We were blessed to know them both and it is a comfort to know that Lillian is now in the presence of the Lord Jesus.

I sure enjoyed getting to know your parents. I remember one time when I was back in the US and visiting in Hesston your mom came and picked me up and we went to Hutch and then spent time at their house. They were special people. May you know the peace and comfort from the Lord.

I have so many wonderful memories of your parents. I think of the time I was there to visit them, and your mom and I went to Hutch. So glad that you all were there to be with her in the last hours. May you know the strength, comfort and joy of the Lord. She is home where she was longing to be.

To Delbert & Lillian's dear family,
My grandmother Esther dearly loved your mom and dad! We went to visit them quite often at their apartment in Pleasant View and they were so welcoming to us everytime! How joyful they must be now together with the loved ones who arrived earlier! And, too, how they would want us to 'finish the race' stronger than when we started!
