    Danny, Angie, Annette and family, I am so sorry for the loss of Deloris! I fondly remember so many things about this special little lady. She could hold her own with her children and her husband (lovingly). I remember the great times we had with Danny at the cycle track and visiting with her at her house (so many years ago). She was spunky (which I loved), felt confident in offering her opinion and she always had a smile on her face (except one time that Bob had made her mad). She made no excuses - she LOVED her children. So that is one thing that should fill your hearts with happiness. Some people go through life and never have that love or get to receive an unconditional love like that. I hope you all find peace in the light that shined around her and the love she left for you through your memories of her. I was honored to know her! Teresa

    Deloris always had room for one more kid in her house. I have lots of good Childhood memories of times spent at her house. She had a big smile and a kind heart. Sorry for your loss.
