    Bobby and family,
    Delilah was such an amazing woman. I think of many words to describe her – mother,friend, hardworker,
    Christian, caring for all uncondionally and that is just a very few. I can only imagine the card game that must be going on in Heaven now!
    Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
