  1. To my sweet Nana, I will always remember spending time with you at the beach. You loved your Redondo Beach and being at the Pier. My fondest memories are of you dressing up and wearing all your jewelry. How you loved to dance and sing to Mariachi music. Your favorite color was purple and you wore with pride. I will always love you Nana. You will never be forgotten. Your Duchess \’Lynette\’.

  2. Delia was always happy to see me and had words of affection for me. She called me mija which made me feel special to her. We enjoyed talking about her childhood in Kansas and the times with her parents while she was growing up as a young girl. These times were precious moments for her and she loved talking about these happy times. She loved watching her John Wayne movies. No matter how many times she saw them, she enjoyed them again as if it were the first time. She loved wtaching her spanish language TV movies and “The Godfather”! She loved her sugary treats like Dr. Pepper, Klondike bars and any kind of chocolate candy, especially See\’s. I remember a woman who loved her family and was very proud of her large family. I believe her wonderful and loving family was her greatest success.
