I am so sorry to hear the passing of Delores. I was just going to call her to see how we should celebrate our birthdays, probably going to the Pizza Ranch. We always think there is more time. I enjoyed our visits and she was a dream on our trip to the Rose Bowl Parade. I will miss her greatly. My sympathies to all of you.

I will miss Delores we started the neighborhood watch for our area and a Weds lunch group for the lady to get acquainted . Delores was such a kind and caring person. She will
be missed by all the people that knew her. My sympathy goes to her family at this time God Bless you all.

Deloris was such a sweet wonderful aunt/lady. I remember working at the St Cloud hospital with her. She will be missed by so many friends.
