We recognized each other on the grassy quad at the University of Illinois in 1967, lived together in communal houses for two years, playing music and raising our consciousness. Then in the early 70's, he came to the Wisconsin hills to add merriment to our lives in the Skyfarmer band, writing fantastic songs and creating endless laughter. They were golden years, and we were all lucky to have him as our brother. I will miss him dearly. He was my player, and I was his voice. My fervent wish is for his magical soul to find new vistas in his celestial home, and to realize God. I love you my brother and soulmate. May we love again. Lee

My sweet El,
I will miss you terribly but have great memories of so many good times spent together.

You used to come to my house on Paxton and play the piano-no music needed, of course. Fun times in college and getting together later in life. We went to Walker Bros with baby Ella and my grandson so you could meet Jeff. The sharing of our many emails over the last few years-checking in on each other were notable times for me.

To my great confidant and friend, I feel solace that you are no longer in pain.
Love you,

Ellyn Gold

Thinking about you Elliott and all the times I walked past your house on my way to Luella. I remember going to a junior (or was it senior) prom with you. What I remember most is your amazing musical talent, warm smile, and warm greeting when I saw you at the Class of '65 reunion - as if I had just run into you walking down our street. Rest in peace, knowing how special you are/were to so many. My warmest thoughts and condolences to the Delman family. Sandy
