  1. Sad to see him go but he is in a more gentel place now and not in so much pain. We will miss him greatly

  2. I will miss uncle Del, I am sure that he will soon be with his family in heaven again, some he hasn’t seen in quite awhile, I am sure that the ones he has left behind love him just as much as the ones he is joining, we will miss him, he will be in our heart till we see him and the rest of the family again.
    ALL MY LOVE GOES TO ALL THE ONES THAT HE LEFT BEHIND.

  3. Our condolences to all there in Pueblo and to those in the family who will not be able to be there with you. It is our hope and prayer that the demons that plagued Uncle Del’s in this life will have released him into God’s open arms in the next one. Via con Dios, Del.

  4. I didn’t see Del much but when I did see him, he was always talking about fishing with Francis and Grandma Liz. And how he was going to come here in May of this year and Del and Grandpa Jim were going to go fishing. Del would soon know where all of Grandpa’s holes were to get the good fish.I am positive the three of them are fishing and at last catching all the big ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. He will be missed by many!
    Love to all,
    Heather and Tramayne Purser

  5. You can be sure Del will be missed for our yearly fishing trip to Rice Lake. It was always a special time to tease and brag to each other. God holds him in his arms now and Del will have no more pain, mental strain or any other problems. Maybe God will give him a couple of pointers, (if Liz hasn’t already)
    Take care, our prayers and love are with all of you. I’m sorry we coudln’t meet in person Hazel. Mary you are still a member of our family. So keep in touch, please. We are flying to Canada to visit with John or we would have been at the funeral. Please keep in touch.
    Love
    Jim and Helen Crosser

  6. Hazel: I’ve never met you yet, but I’m so very sorry for the sudden loss of our loved one. I’m also sorry for his children as well. He was such a great uncle and we have so many memories to carry on of him. I will keep everyone in my heart and prayers. Love to you all. Cindy
