Delmar used to travel with us when we had an appointment to sing at a church here in the county. He would play his guitar and seemed to enjoy so much. He was a blessing to us and I am sure other people. So sad to hear of his passing. May our loss be heaven's gain. Barb Smith on behalf of the Braden Family.
