Delores was a great gal. A visit with her was always an enjoyable event.
Sorry to hear of Delores' passing. Many great memories of the Casebolt 66, when dad had the bulk plant next door.
I remember first meeting your mom when we moved to Gladbrook. What a cool lady! All the antiques and then her way with words! Liked her right away. Your mom and dad were very much a positive part of growing up in a better world. We were fortunate to have parents that lived through tough times and still were able to pass on their love of life and care for us and others. You are all in my thoughts and I will always have a special place in my heart for your mom and dad. Jeff Ulch
