To Deloris’ family and friends: My deepest sympathy to all of you at this difficult time of loss. I’m happy to have the chance to have met and cared for Deloris while at Crestwood Care Center. May God bring you comfort now and the days ahead.
I’d like to leave this poem in her honor.
The Rose Beyond The Wall
A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall…
One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted – the rose blooms there-
its beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God’s own loving care.

We will all miss her and we all have lots of wonderful memories of growing up and going to Aunt Sissie’s and Uncle Herman’s. Let God’s deep love and understanding help you in your grief. For He is there to ease the pain and bring your sorrowing heart relief. Love, Harold and Cheryl(Paylor)Slone

Dear Freddy and Beverly and Family, May God comfort you during this time of sorrow. I know Sissie really enjoyed her flowers so I would like to send this poem in memory of her called “God picks a flower” Sometimes God picks a flower that’s still in full bloom. Sometimes the flower that is chosen, we feel He’s picked to soon. We’re at peace knowing; in God’s heavenly garden, He has placed the ones we treasure. You have changed our lives forever.Love, Jim and Betty Paylor
