Ms. Delores was my preschool teacher. I remember we used to sit in a half circle around her every morning. She would take two flouride pills pop them in her mouth , chew them then show us they were chewed up. She would then close her mouth and make a swallowing motion, hit the back of her head then open her mouth and show us the pills we're whole again!! We always asked how she did it lol but she never told her secret. I'm an adult now and still have no idea . Her magic did not stop there, she was the most loving woman I've ever met...I was so lucky to have been able to see her as an adult and let her know how amazing she made my childhood. I'm am greatly saddened by her passing but I know now she is no longer in pain and now living her eternity as our angel in heaven.

Dolores was the best foster mother I have ever had. Before I met her, I was in unstable placements. She gave me a sense of belonging, a sense of maturity and most importantly, she brought out the resilience in me that I thought was dead a long time ago. If it weren't for Dolores, I would have committed suicide or would have been in Juvinille Hall. I now publicly speak and I dedicate my life to her. Dolores will be forever missed and she is rejoicing in God's heavenly and beloved kingdom. Rest in harmonious peace Dolores Garcia.
