Family members reminded her of that promise and built a wooden table for her to dance on. Walker, a woman of her word, kept the promise.

"The 'old boogy-walking-base-beat' is what really lights her up," says Delia's grandson, Jim Walker.
Jim takes Delia to Brownwood every Thursday to participate in the Senior Citizen Dance Night. She says Thursday mornings are spent at the beauty palor, and nights, spent on the dance floor.
