My name is Sharon (Melton) Van Dyck and I used to work with Dolores at the VA for many years. My first job was working with her and we had a wonderful time together. She was a wonderful person and she loved her children so much. I always loved that red hair of hers. I know you will miss her so much. It is so odd, my mother who was 93 years old passed away on the same day as Dolores, April 13, 2014. I live in PA now and cannot attend her services but want to send my condolences to you her family. May God comfort you as only He can.
