My heart aches for you all. Because Daleray was doing God's work, in what I assume was his favorite way of traveling, I believe he was immediately taken up with Jesus. I pray you will be comforted by that hope, knowing full well that you will one day be reunited with your son and brother. "For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ."

May Jesus bring the family comfort. Daleray was a servant of the Lord and we will miss him very much. Pilots for Christ may be missing a great pilot but heaven is rejoicing!
