During her lifetime, Mrs. Delaney donated 80 pints of blood to the American Red Cross as this was a cause close to her heart. Her wish was that any contributions be made to the American Red Cross in her memory.

Mom, no matter what has happened to us and no matter what shall ever happen to us, we consider ourselves the luckiest people who ever lived, for having you as a Mother. As we mourn our loss, and celebrate your life, we will try to do so by the examples you taught us…during our darkest moments our love, care and faith will shine the brightest.

God needed another angel by his side.
