Sue and Bauer Boy's, I just want to take this time to tell you all what a joy it was to have Del in our family. Your Mom is my counsin, and I remember as a kid coming to the farm on the 4th of July for the Riedlberger family picnic. My Mom and Dad, Mike and Millie Riedlberger would pack up the car and we would head down to the farm - it seemed like it was days away!!!! We always had such a good time and my Dad could not wait to sit an play cards with your Dad. I think Del was one of my Dad's favorites, they always had a good time and lots of laughs. Kind of like when I took you Mom's spoon home and she never let me forget it!!!!!!!!!! I still have an e-mail in my file that I got from her when she was still working. She too was quite a cousin. I know this is a hard time for a family, but you have your memories to hold on to and no one can take them away from you. Take care - Pat Gallatin (Mike and Millie's daughter)
