  1. The world is a sadder place since your passing. We will miss you. Your friends and family can been in peace knowing you are in a better place.

  2. I got back from an out of town trip to learn of Delores death. I'm so sorry for your loss.
    She was such a sweet lady. The pictures sure brought back a lot memories. Our families spent many fun Saturday nights together playing games. It doesn't seem like it was over 50 years ago! My condolences to all of you.
