Dear Hamann family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Delora. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart. Additional Bible based comfort can be found at Search:Comfort.

Missy and Chrystal, I worked over 30 years with your mom. She was a great friend, nurse and mentor. She was one heck of an IV starter... But the thing she was most proud of was the two of you. She was so proud of both your accomplishments, she would beam with joy talking about you. So very sorry for your loss. Julie
