Being Tom and Mary Delia's neighbor for many years was a real honor. They were two of the kindest and most generous souls both to my family and to everyone they met. We are saddened to hear of their passing. And will remember them always with great Love and Respect.

My sincere condolences to the Farquhar family. David, Nina, and Johnny, you may not remember me but I lived just up the hill from your grandparents' house in Somesville. I looked forward to your visits every summer. We spent a lot of time together and your mother was always so good to me. I am so sorry for your loss.
