Just heard of Delpdha's passing. Her sister, Jessie, was my mother. My sincere condolences to the family especially Patty and Bobby my cousins. I guess she is the last of mom's siblings. Delpha had a wonderful smile and I loved the way she loved her dogs, as I am an animal lover too. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
