My thoughts and prayers are with my whole family. My Aunt Dephine was so sweet. I remember getting to go over there when we were growing up and getting to ride all the horses at their farm and having lots of fun with my cousins. She is one of the most family oriented aunts I ever had. We will miss you dearly. Fly High my auntie. From Peggy sue ( Faulkner) Mickle, New Market Tn.

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your wonderful mother. She was such a pleasant, nice woman and neighbor. I know she was a great mother to all the children in her life and a hard worker through her life. She was surely loved and will be greatly missed by many. We send prayers for all the family at this time. Keith & Sue Bard

Some of my very best childhood memories are of times I spent on Grandma DeLee's farm. Peeling potatoes, the smell of pancakes cooking and using brown sugar and coffee for syrup, the creaking of the floor boards, big tubs of Schwan's chocolate ice cream, hide and seek in the hay mow, walking the pasture, and hours and hours spent playing with cousins without a care in the world. We would all spend the night at the farm and Grandma would put the chairs in the living room face to face for us to sleep. I will treasure these memories forever. Thank you Grandma, I love you.
Love, Jaclyn Delphine
