Billy and Family, I was heartbroken to hear of moms passing. I always looked forward to the summers as we would sit by the pool and have our little chats. I will miss her smiles, hugs and how she made me feel like part of the family. Until we meet again, may God hold you close in his arms.

It is with deep sorrow that I write this tribute for Mrs. “D.” She was truly an incredible and amazing person. A legend in all aspects of her life. Known for decades as a staunch community leader for the West Long Branch residence and youth sport players. Recently, she lobbied for two flashing stop signs at the ever so dangerous intersection of Hollywood and Norwood Avenue. Needless to say, it got done because people listen to Patsy. My fondest memory of her will be her surprise guest appearance at our annual Shores best athletic alumni gathering. Her presence and spirit that sunny day will be remembered forever by all who attended. Personally, I will miss my bike rides, stopping by her driveway to chat when she was sitting in her chair taking in the sun. The Delahanty crew is so blessed and fortunate to have had her as their mother and friend. Rest in peace Mrs. D, and know you will be missed, but never forgotten. You did make a difference.
