  • Jane & Family,

    Delwyn was quite the character! My daughters and I have many fond memories of his teasing and his caring spirit. He definitely kept us on our toes. I remember all those Sunday afternoons, getting lunch after church with the tight-knit little group from Galion Free Methodist. These are great memories for all of us!

    Reaching out with prayers to Jane and family for comfort,

    With love,
    Laurie Smith, Michaela and Natalie Slone
