Such a special woman who will be missed in all our hearts. She was there for all of us growing up even if I was her step daughter . She was always there to listen or help out in anyway possible, even as we grew up and moved away. All my love to you Mom (Delores). You will be missed so much. I have a space in my heart now that will always be for you. Love and miss you. Rest In Peace.

We have been neighbors to Delores since she and Kenny were married. She loved her flowers, especially her roses. She was a fun neighbor, and always there if you needed anything. We will miss seeing her out in the yard in the summer, or out walking one of her favorite dogs up the road. RIP Dee.
