AIDS patient succumbs to illness

Story Picture
Tonight we regret to announce the death of AIDS patient Delmi. News 5 understands that just after ten this morning, Delmi died at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital from complications due to her illness. Delmi leaves behind her five-year-old son and eleven year old daughter. We understand that the children will temporarily be staying with a relative until other arrangements can be made. We last saw Delmi on December thirty-first fighting the last stages of the disease…but at that time was not able to speak or sit up. Several viewers had helped Delmi since we told her story in November 2002, and the family extends their sincere appreciation to those people. Funeral services have been tentatively set for 2:00 p.m. tomorrow at the Saint Martin’s De Porres Church in Belize City.
