My Tia Dalia was the sweetest. Yes I would agree, she loved all children. Her heart was beautiful. She will always have a special place in my heart as all my DeLeon cousins do. I will treasure all of our conversations and her loving memories from back in the day. She will be so missed, but I know she is happy now. She is with her loving Jesus and her husband my loving uncle Tito. God bless all of you. She loved each of you endlessly. She always told me so!

Just saw the info about Dalia moving on to the next life. What a comfort to know our loved ones leave here & go to the arms of Jesus. Dalia & I spent some time together as workers in the nursery…..what a lovely, gentle, kind woman. In reading her obituary, seems her time here was very productive, touching many hearts & lives. Bobby & Donna…..she was very blessed to have your loving care.
