    Delaine (Egypt) and I met here in Las Vegas in 1984, I adopted her from the gym. She looked lonely and in need of a friend. The rest is history. We remained friends until the end. RIP dear friend

    I remember her always smiling, a loud happy laugh, and her accent of home. Time flies too fast, even when you think you are paying attention. God rest your soul Delaine. You will be missed.
