We have so many wonderful memories with Delonia and her late husband Ray. It was Joe ,Rita,Ray, Delonia, Donnie and I that were always doing fun things together. Mostly car shows and playing cards. Delonia was so funny and witty. Clayton was born and their hearts were full. Thank you Delonia for the memories that we will cherish always. Love Monica and Fuzzy.
