    Delia had a beautiful soul; and I can see why she would like for people to wear something bright. I can’t help but noticed that my Nicolas and her shared a birthday. I told April earlier now they both are in heaven celebrating together. My prayers are with you little Delia and I hope you know we love you and are here for you.
    The Bautista family 😘
