Dear Delane was the epitome of a Southern lady. She was always ready with a smile and a kind word. A true friend. We all will miss her so much and we will never forget the joy she brought to our lives. She now is hiking heaven's hills waiting for the rest of us to join her when our time arrives.

We all knew this was imminent, but it is still heartbreaking. May peace be with all of us that shared the joy, laughter and wisdom of Delane. Delane’s spirit will remain with me the rest of my life. I was so fortunate to call this beautiful southern lady my best friend.
