A truly remarkable woman. Her memory will live long in the hearts and minds of those she touched. I am a better woman and nurse for having known her. It was a great honor to care for her.

Aunt Deli will be missed by our family. She was so very proud to have become a United States citizen and loved our country. She was funny, could be stern, loyal, loving and a very giving lady. I will miss her. Uncle Warren, Roena and Robby, my thoughts and prayers are with you and I am here if you need me. Love, Billie.

Uncle Warren, Roena, Damon and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Adele was a beautiful person and one of the best aunts anyone could have ask for. I will always remember her visits, her jokes and laughter. She was such pleasure to be around. R.I.P Aunt Adele
