When I look back over my teaching career, I appreciatively recall my seven years at CVJH. Your dad was welcoming and friendly from day one. He was very supportive of my home economics program and was encouraging with his complements on teaching techniques. There are so many individual stories to relate, but one only needed to spend a small about of time with him to see how much he cared for lost kids and finding solutions to getting them facing in the right direction. He was a just administrator and so knowledgeable about education. I feel fortunate to have been on his faculty. I am glad for you that he had a long life.

Lauren : We just found out about your father's passing. He and your mom were two of our first friends at New Hope Community Church and we cherished them dearly. He was a wonderful man, a great Christian brother and a wonderful example of God;'s love. Barbara and Raleigh Sanders

Del and Juanita were longtime friends with my parents since college days. Del and Juanita were my Godparents. I always felt special and loved by them through the years. When I was a kid, Del used to joke about me coming to live with his family if I wasn't treated right in my own. There was a time or two when I was a young girl and felt misunderstood for some reason or another in my own family that I considered taking him up on his offer. What would he have said if I showed up on his doorstep with suitcase in hand?! I had lunch with Del and my mother last year when I was visiting San Diego. When saying goodbye, Del took me aside and told me how proud of me he was. I felt special and loved, and I will treasure his last words to me. Heartfelt condolences to Greg, Julie and Laurie, whom I have known since childhood; and, the rest of the extended family. He will be fondly remembered for all of my days. I'm truly a better person because Del was in my world.
