IN LOVING MEMORY OF DAHLIA
Dahlia was a sweet special sister-in-law to me. She was very kind and very well mannered. She would always remember your birthday, and was very family oriented. She never married and lived at home with her parents, Clara and Saturno.
Dahlia was a sickly, delicate type of person. She always had to take medicine and had to get blood transfusions which left her with a bad arthritis condition, because blood was not tested at that time. We never knew until she passed away that she had luekemia. Her hands and fingers were so disfigured, but she managed to clean the house of a neighbor and always did her share of work around the house. Dahlia never complained about her health and always had a big beautiful smile on her face.
I remember how she would play and hug my son, who was only 9 months old when she passed, and the love she showed all of the other grandchildren. She would make me feel so special when I would visit. Dahlia was a very special lady, and even though it has been many years since she left our family, I still remember her, as if it was yesterday. God saw her getting weak and called her home.
Rest in peace, Dear Dahlia.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to each and everyone that took the time to leave a token for Dahlia's Angel Day and Birthday. She would be blushing right now with all the attention. She was such a beautiful, sweet, modest lady, very much loved by everyone who knew her. Thank you, friends.
