I'm sorry to hear about your mom. My deepest sympathies to you and your families. I enjoyed seeing her at church when she was going to St Jude. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

I will always remember my Godmother as a beautiful, loving and fun Aunt. Her Catholic faith was very important to her and helped her get through so many tough times. I loved the beautiful way she showed care for her Mother, my Grandma Gage. My Aunt could lift everyone’s spirits even in her darkest of days. I love you Aunt D and will miss you.

My Aunt, Godmother and Friend. As a young girl, I wanted to be just like her. She smoked, dressed fashionably and drove a convertible. I finally realized, there was only one Delores. She was an original! Growing up with three brothers and an adoring father, she was truly the princess! Luckily, she found her prince and they raised a beautiful family. I loved her very much and will miss her always. I know she is reunited with her loved ones and she is happy and at peace.

I’ve always admired my beautiful, classy, humorous, Aunt Delores. My Dad used to tell me, I reminded him of his beloved sister - maybe because we both loved to shop🤣! Regardless, I’m honored and proud to share this very personal memory of a wonderful lady.
