I just received a spark mail from Delapis and I would like to let the team know of her loss:
The reason you haven't heard from me in a while is because I lost my husband in the early morning hrs of July 24th.
It's too hard for me to go into it now with everyone. Please fill them in for me and tell them that I'll be back online but not sure just when.------My son's 25th birthday was July 23rd and Tommy held on till 12:40 am on the 24th. We buried him on Sunday July 27th and then I had to pack to go to my son's wedding. The rehearsal dinner was Aug. 1st and the wedding was Aug. 2nd in Charlotte, NC. Then my older son and his wife insisted that I follow them to Hilton Head for a few days. They had business there and didn't want me to go home right away to an empty house. I finally came back home this past Thursday night. It's very hard being in this house alone. Tommy and I would have been married 40 years in December.
