Delma’s tribute was beautifully written in her honor by her daughters.

“We Had a Wonderful Mother”

“We had a wonderful Mother,

One who never really grew old;

Her smile was made of sunshine, 

And her heart was solid gold;

Her eyes were as bright as shining stars;

In her cheeks, fair roses you see.

We had a wonderful Mother, And that’s the way it will be.

But take heed, because she’s still keeping an eye on all of us.

So, let’s make sure she will like what she sees.”
