    My sympathy to the McNamee Farmily. It was a priviledge to know and work with Delores and Virgil. Delores was a very good recordkeeper who kept excellent records and almanacs. She wore a lot of hats and made it look easy. Having a cup of coffee around that large kitchen table is a memory that I will always hold on to. God Bless you all.
