    Charlie, Lyndon, Laura Jean,

    Lifting you up today and always! May your loss be lessened in the remembrance of Delouris’ love for you. (Especially those nights in high school she made Charles call our house wondering if Lyndon was on his way home yet!!)

    I wish I could be at the funeral but with a job change I am unable so I will be thinking fondly of you as you move through the next few days and weeks.

    My condolences,

    Carrie Sheldon

    To the Beebe Family,
    I want to offer my sincerest and deepest condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother. I have many fond memories of Delouris when I was coaching with Lyndon and Cindy in Schuyler. She was a very sweet and special lady. She is now your Guardian Angel and will watch over all of you. Continue to remember all of the fun and special memories and keep them all close to your heart. Yes, she will be missed, but please know that she is in a much better place waiting to be reunited with her family and friends some day. Rest in peace Delouris.

    Charles, Lyndon and family,

    Praying for you as you “celebrate” the life of one amazing woman. Charles and Delouris were our biggest fans – I can still picture her smile from up in the stands and after nearly EVERY game! Be comforted by knowing that she is at peace and in very good hands until the day we can join her.

    In Christ,
    Aaron and Alissa Clough
