Dolores never forgot about Brittany on her birthdays and her religious accomplishments. I have missed her being a comfort next door to my mom and all her funny stories. Your mom and dad were so funny together, and your dad was a great help to my mom after my dad died. Dolores always had faith and never missed a church service. Dolores was an asset to Holy Angels Church. Everyone in the neighborhood grieves with you. Dolores left too early.

  11. Aunt Dolores a truly remarkable woman, one who saw life as an adventure. On our many trips across the country for new Navy postings, we often stopped at Uncle John and Aunt Dolores’ home. Our visits were always memorable and lots of fun.
