Memorial Balloon Release on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020, at 2 p.m.

Due to Social Distancing, I am not able to have a proper memorial for Delmas or at least the type he so deserves. So, I decided to have a Memorial Balloon Release.

This will be a drive-by to our home at 15068 East Yellow Water Road, Hammond, La 70403. Please arrive early to line up at 42084 Lumino Lane. A Deputy and others will be there to direct you to line up. You will then be given a balloon. You will release the balloon at our home in the driveway.

The drive by will start at 2 p.m. The Deputy will start the drive by showing you where to turn and exit our driveway. If you would like to write a message about Delmas, someone will be there with a basket to put your message in.

I want to thank the many family and friends that called and visited Delmas the last four and half years of his illness. He enjoyed every call and visit.

Also, I would like to thank all of our family and friends that have called and visited me every day through this difficult time. Thank you for all your prayers.

A special heartfelt thank you to my niece, Darlene Bruno, and my best friend, Janet Perise, who have been here for me every day through this difficult time in my life. May God Bless You Both.

Most of all I give Thanks and Praise to Our Dear Lord for helping me through this difficult time in my life.

Delmas is very deeply missed and he will always be in my heart.

God bless and love to all.
