Just heard about the sad passing of Delbert. I worked with Delbert in the RSC days and held a high regard for him. Thought a lot a lot about often him from our past and held him in high regards. I hope that all are doing well and and again, my late condolences. Delbert was a caricature and I always loved working with him everyday while I had had the chance. God bless his family knowing they had an awesome guy to lead by example. Delbert might be gone but he is never forgotten in my mind. Sorry so late for the post but just found out it today.
