Mr.Delks family... I miss him :'( I walked past his house everyday, he would see me but pretend he didnt, then walk out to the road to walk with me lol. He would walk a little ways with me then Id talk to deter/distract him and send him back to his house. He did walk a whole round of the park with me once. After that he would say one of these days Im going to walk again... he could eaisley out-walk me!! He was so nice I will always remember you Mr.Delk.

My love and prayers to Pete's family. He was one of the first people that I met at Mercy when I moved here in 1984. Always a smile and a kind word. He was full of jokes. God has a special angel.
