Mrs. Hernandez has been a wonderful friend of our family for well over 60 years. My parents, Felix and Berta Rodriguez were also active members of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and this is where my family became very good friends with the Hernandez family.
Throughout the years I remember Mr. and Mrs. Hernandez and family helping out at the church kitchen on Sundays, at our annual fiesta, running the fajita tent and organizing other fundraising activities at the church.
She was a beautiful lady with a kind heart. Her memory will live on as her kids continue the Hernandez tradition of helping others when needed at the church.

With loving memories,
Oscar and Renee Rodriguez

All of us at Krapohl Senior Center who knew Delfina are very sad to hear this news. She was a participant for many many years. We could always count on her to help with Cinco de Mayo events and other dinners that we had. She made the best tamales too.
Until her health worsened, she couldn't wait to go on the monthly casino trips and come to weekly Bingo.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Defina was one of a kind. She will be missed.
