  7. Jim and family…..we were saddened to learn of Dalis’ passing. She was a sweet lady and will be missed by a lot of folks. One of our memories of her was one of the trips we were on together, at breakfast, she brought out the BIGGEST bottle of vitamins etc we had ever seen. She was adamant about you all taking them……we had a good laugh about that. You have truly been a faithful mate the past few years, Jim, and she knew that. Please know that we are sending a lot of hugs and prayers for you.

  8. Jim, we are so sorry for your loss. We will miss her bright and sunny smile and laugh. She can never be replaced or matched….especially in her love for her family. We loved her “special” banana bread she always made for Joe. Shopping with her was always a treat and no one can match her vivacious attitude. Needless to say, we will always miss her and remember her as our very dear friend. She complimented her hubby well and loved him dearly. Some of our social events will never be the same without her.

  13. Jim and Evette
    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I worked with Dalis at the Health Department for many years and like so many others truly enjoyed our friendship. She made me laugh every day. She always spoke about all of you including her beautiful grandchildren. My kids got to enjoy her delicious banana bread. I will miss her dearly. May God comfort your family and give you strength during this difficult time 🙏

  14. Jim, Evette
    I am so sorry for your loss. Only knew Dalis short time through her sister Diana. She would always tell Diana, This is your Baby Sister! She was so full of energy. A pleasure to be around. She was in complete control, making everyone happy. Will miss her Banana & Zucchini bread she would always bake & had JD deliver to us. We would go pick up at Fire Station. I know she is happy with her son now. May her family have strength in remembering the good times. May God keep her in his arms. She will truly be missed. 🙏

  15. Jim, Gail and I are so sorry to her about Dalis passing. She was truly a wonderful lady to be associated with. Always smiling and happy. We enjoyed joining you and her on the dance floor. You and your family are in our prayers.

We laughed together at a dinner where the only food left was potato chips so we shared a few bags, insisting it was a balanced meal!
    You all are in our prayers in the days ahead.
