    Thank you for sharing the beautiful tribute to your folks in the video. We remember them from the Little Red days, as all four of our kids went there. Also, Delores, from the Busy Bees Homemakers club Such a classy lady and good role model for us younger members at the time. She was a treasure to know. You have my deepest sympathy.

    Rick, Jeff, Randy..... Sending thoughts and prayers for your loss. It is sadness for all of us whom your Mom touched. She was so kind to myself, Ron and Mary Ellen when our Mom died. Her door was always open and so was her heart! I have many special memories of her kindness.

    May Deloris now rest in peace with Dick. I feel truly blessed to have known them. Many years have passed since I was the secretary at Little Red School, from 1983-86 but I think of them so often especially at this time of the year when I plant my garden (Dick shared some great tips). They were both a joy to work with and I valued their friendship for many years there after. Dick and Deloris were a true example of love for each other, for family, and for friends.
