Your passage on this earth may have ended Del, but now a new calling in God's realm beckons you, compering and organising his rallies. It is sad for us to lose such a valuable, true and loyal friend like you, and each and everyone of us in Towrags will miss you and retain fond memories of you, be it the antics you got up to at our rallies and meetings, your willingness to lend a hand where needed, or your beaming smile that greeted us whatever the weather on our many escapades with the Towrags.

Our loss is surely the Angels gain ”I hope they know how to party hard up there, if they don't I'm guessing they will do soon, and I also hope they have a very large teapot, cause they’re certainly going to need that”. and pity the angel that gets the job of brewing up, it will never be right.

Del I’m not going to say goodbye, just Au’revoir my friend until we meet again. God bless you Del, enjoy the highways of heaven and line up some stunning rideouts for when we join you again.
