I'm Pastor Mark from Willow View United Methodist Church. Delbert was one of my good friends at the Enid Recycling Center. I met him a little over two years ago when we moved to Enid. He was always so very helpful though I always did my best to cheer him up! We gave him a small gift for his 66th Birthday and I gave him $5 cash at Christmas this year. He was so thrilled! I know heaven is a little sweeter today. May the Lord Jesus be your comfort--
