    I have many fond memories of growing up around Dolores. Even though I haven't seen her since the middle 2000s I still love her very much as well as Tammy and Holly. I wish them all a good and hardy life.

  2. Haven't seen Delores in years. Fond memories of Helen Woods Sunday school class, where Delores and I became close friends. Tammy & Holly your mother was a sweet lady, and a cherished friend. Prayers for you in her absence.

  3. Tammy & Holly my sympathy to you on the loss of your mother. Delores was one of the sweetest ladies that I had the pleasure of knowing. She will be missed.
