    You will be missed by many. Your grandkids will never forget your Candy Tree

    Delia, our condolences to you and your family.
    We feel heavy hearts for the loss of our dear backyard neighbor, Dennis. We will miss the easy conversations about mutual projects of tree removals, matters of vegetables and weeds and snakes and armadillos that always escape us. Raising Monarch butterflies and the bat house will keep his memory alive for years to come. We could not have asked for a better neighbor and we feel acutely the loss of a good friend.

    Sorry for your loss..
