Thoughts and prayers to the family. I am going to miss my phone calls from Delmar. His opening line was, “you up for all day?” He always had time to visit.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Goldhammer family. I remember many nights back in the 60’s riding around with Delmar, Steve, Myron, Dan. In Delmar’s 62 Olds listening to the Statler Brothers on the radio singing “Flowers on the Wall”. He will be missed.
