    I remember my Uncle Del as a warm, funny, generous man, with a great sense of humor. He had a twinkle in his eye, and loved to tell a good story, but he was a good listener, too.

    I was driving back to PEI with my wife Tania and family when I was told of his passing. We were saddened. I shared stories of Uncle Dell’s classic lines at family functions. We all know at least one, yes? 🙂

    On behalf of myself and my family; wife Tania, and daughters Caitlin, Julia, and Gabrielle, I want to share my heartfelt condolences to my wonderful Aunt Bonnie and our cousins Tracy and Tommy. We share in your loss and sadness at this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and hearts.

    With love,
    Colin Kennific and family

    Now I’m Free
    Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free,
    I’m following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard him call,
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks left undone will stay that way,
    I found that peace at close of day.
    If my parting has left a void
    Then fill it with remembered joy
    A friendship shared, a laugh or two
    Ah yes, these things we, too, will miss.
    Amen
    Norm and Sylvia (neighbors)

    We wish to extend our sympathy to Bonnie, Tracy, Tom, and all the Connolly family. Del was our long time true & faithful friend. He had a passion for family and a great sense of humour. He loved to go over all the old stories and old characters from around Morell whenever we would visit. We would all have lots of laughs when Del was around and we always loved hearing Del’s hearty laugh. Del’s passing is a big loss to all of us! Our thoughts & prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Love Garry, Betty & family
