Friends and Family,

We have lost a great lady, my sweet Aunt Del. My momma's lifelong best friend. My second momma. A treasure!

Aunt Del had a divine presence about her, and I could feel that presence from the time I was very little. Aunt Del demonstrated goodness, love and mercy to all. She loved everyone she knew with her whole heart regardless of their life situation. She took into her home those that were down and out on their luck and helped them get back on their feet. Aunt Del was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, sister, sister inlaw, friend and role model. She demonstrated daily what is was like to live a Christ-like life.

What I will remember most about her is her positive attitude and how she exuded joy. I will miss her genuine hugs. I loved how she loved her country music and how the country dj's loved her. She was a character!

Rest in beautiful peace my dear Aunt Del for you are with your Lord and no one deserves this rest more than you. You will always be loved and deeply missed.

Barbara Poursoltan
