Delora was in our lives for a little over a year. She filled us with love overflowing! We always wanted to play special music for her and loved to see her face lit up while worshiping. She always loved to get her special hello from Gizmo. We loved her so much and she will be dearly missed. Her love will continue flowing through her beautiful family we are blessed to have. Condolences, prayers and hugs to the family. :heart::pray::latin_cross:

Dear Deb,Tim, Kacey, Mike, and Clayton, You know how sorry we are. We are so sad even though we know she is having a great time with Ted. Wish we could have been there to help. She was always so sweet and good to us. We know she is happy but we will miss her so much. We pray God will give you all peace and comfort you need and everything and anything you need now. We LOVE y'all. Buster LeeAnn and family. :blue_heart::latin_cross::latin_cross::heart:
