I first met Aunt Del at Schnell's wedding. I thought her both beautiful and elegant - full of grace. She welcomed me as a new family member with that smile of hers. It left me feeling warm and part of the family. Each time I saw her, I felt that same warmth.
I know she loved you all and she knew that you loved her. She will indeed be missed by us all. God bless you with the strength and peace to endure.
I am sorry that I could not be there to provide support and to celebrate sweet Aunt Del's life with you. My mother and father send condolences to the family as well.

The Lord created us to be just like Him; the light of the world. Darkness, even in the form of an earthly death, can not comprehend the joy that comes in the morning for christians. Aunt Del reflected her devoted love to all who had the pleasure of knowing her, even if it was through her beautiful smile. So family, as recipients of that light, it is our duty to continue to shine. Reflect back on how devoted she was to not just Uncle Raymond, but to each of her children and grandchildren. Reflect back to her strengths. Even though she worked, your home was never dirty, nor without a good hot meal. Aunt Del was structured, forgiving and extremely proud of each of you. The memories that she leaves behind, through love, will shine bright, and see you through even a time, such as this. A family that prays together, stays together. You are all in our prayers and we love you, Waldon (Mack and Penny), Patricia McAllister-Dunning, Sherwand, Waldon Jr., Latricia, Shantel and Gaylin.

My siblings and I grew up with the Carey 8. Our families were back yard neighbors, and we were in and out of each other’s homes. I remember Del as a caring sister to her siblings and a good and supportive friend to our family. Take comfort, family, in knowing that Idelma is sleeping with the saints, and you will see her again.
