    Terry, I speak for the entire Delta Golf Committee when I tell you we are very, very sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is a very emotional experience, but, however, one we all have to endure sooner or later. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow. Warm regards.
