So, so sorry for your loss. Dolores was like another aunt to me. She was always included in our gatherings and she sure was a great person. Always would bring her little wagon filled with "stuff" along with her and extra clothes if you would let her stay!! She would stay with my mom, Alice, and what a hoot that was!! Lots of stories and laughs!! We will remember "blue eyes" with much love and affection!! Wonderful lady!! Prayers and sincere sympathy to the entire family!!
