    Through your guidance and example, I learned compassion, commitment, charity, pride in a job well done, and integrity. Your encouragement and love helped me grow into a strong and independent woman ready for life’s challenges. I am very proud to be your daughter. Thank you.

    Very sorry for your families loss! I still use many of the fundamental golf lessons Mr. Delk taught me almost 25 years later. He was a good teacher, stressed never to take the game too serious, and most important have fun. I remember him fondly from both shop class and golf. He was an influential teacher from my Lakewood days. May he rest in peace!
