Delia cleaned our home for a few years when I had a home daycare. She was always a breath of fresh air and her zest for life was such an inspiration. She would often recognize our busy lifestyle by secretly leaving a crockpot meal on our counter after she was done cleaning. I still have some of her handwritten recipies in my cookbook. She will be truly missed and definately not forgotten. She is with Jesus....till we meet again Delia!
Warm, generous and so very kind
