    We were devastated to learn of Dellas passing. We kind of grew apart as we had families and devoted more time to our kids. I remember the last time I saw her was when she worked at the brown recluse, she invited us to her house and we reminisced of earlier times and her parents and ours camping and bbqing. We will miss her tremendously, she is leaving a big hole in our hearts. Her cousins Manny and Janie Venegas.
