I had known Dolores for over 30 years. She was not only my mother-in-law but a surrogate mother as well.

She was a very giving and kind woman who will be sorely missed.

She and her husband Al helped us raise our children, Nik and Karina.

They loved their grandmother and were very fortunate to have her in their lives.

Love you Dolores and may you continue to R.I.P...

Wishing the Trimer family strength of God Grace & Mercy upon such difficulty in your times of bereavement because not only you loss your mom but a blessing she lived a full life after her husband. And when someone losses a mom you loss one of the greatest friend in the world because there no friends like a mom. Stay blessed with God strength to endure.
