Wade and Brad, I have fond memories of your Mom (and Dad). She was always friendly and welcoming. I never remember a cross word from her. I only saw her a couple of times after I moved from Athens, but I think of her and have tried to keep up with her and you all through Mom and Dad. Keeping you in my prayers. Kelly Simpson Stooksbury

Thinking of you all with love. Delores and Alan were such good people and so nice when all of our boys were growing up together. She will be missed!

So sorry to hear of Delores death. I knew she and Alan for many years when we still lived in Athens, went to First Baptist Church and sang in the choir. I can fully understand your loss because I just lost my wife of 66 years, Betty Ann McMahan McKenzie, May 3. You are in my thoughts and prayers. She was a lovely Lady. Dr. John McKenzie
