    My mom Shirley Listul spoke so highly of him. She said now my grandparents have all their children together with them again. Must be quite a heavenly reunion! He looked so much like his sister, Alice, my grandmother. Can sure tell they are siblings. May he rest in peace! Wish we could take my parents to the memorial service but they are predicting two winter storms in the Fargo area starting Friday. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I have a picture of my grandma Alice with her 8 siblings on one of my coffee tables. It is a very old picture and one I cherish. God bless you all! Debbie (Listul) Schulz

    Del was such a nice guy. I always enjoyed talking to him, whether it was when he was dumping his tanker or out at the river. The earth will miss him dearly, but he is an awesome addition to Heaven.
