We were best of friends when all of us lived in Lake Jackson and Turtle Cove, Texas where we lived next door to each other. Gus and Jerry worked at the same plant in Freeport, Texas this was from 1971 to 1978. We saw there two girls Natalie and Kim grow up. A lot of years have gone by, but I feel like it was yesterday that we were all young and full of life and starting our future with our young kids. Your kids will carry your memory in there hearts.
Life has a way of making our time on this earth shorter than we all would like but we do the best we can and thank the Good Lord for the years we had to experience what life has to offer and except the challenges that come our way and do our best to do the right thing.
Delia, did what she had to do in life; right or wrong it was her way. May God Rest Her Soul for all eternity.
We miss you my friend,
Juanita and Gus Garza

Delia was a beautiful person, whom I have such fond memories of when I was a young girl. Although adulthood would separate us, the memories I have of the time I spent with her are priceless. As a teenager, I would spend a lot of time with her parents and younger sister Melinda, my classmate and best friend. During that time, Delia loved sharing stories of the love letters she was receiving from Jerry Nickerson, who was a Marine serving time during the Vietnam conflict. She was always so excited to receive her love letters and would sit with me and share the content of her letters. I would get to visit her when she and Jerry lived in Clute, Texas, as newlyweds. She was always so beautiful and elegant. Rest in peace, sweet angel. You are now in a beautiful paradise with no pain. Till we meet again.
