Deloris was an amazing woman, Mother & Friend. She raised 6 Wonderful Precious Children. She will be missed by us all.

Into each life some rain must fall but sunshine does appear. 
It brings with it a rainbow 
and a message that is clear.
Please know that you are not alone that we all hold you dear
Let faith and hope into your heart and keep your memories near.
With ALL OUR Love & Prayers,

No Tears Past The Gate
Someone new has entered
our eternal home above -
the heavenly gate has opened
to welcome the one you love.
We cannot help the tears that fall -
our hearts need time to grieve
when earthly life has ended
and a loved one has to leave.
Yet even in the saddest time,
we know our Savior lives,
and we can trust completely
in the promise that He gives -
that in a glad reunion with the Lord
our loved ones wait to welcome us
in joy with no more tears
beyond the gate!
