Dolores Coletta HANLON
April 6, 2019
The memories I will always cherish the Most with Doe are the times when I was young and I visited her and my Aunt Mary at their apartment in Oklahoma City. They took my sister and I to baseball games; we sat close enough to talk to the players, went back to their place and drank Coca Cola from bottles held in wooden crates. Also, Doe arriving with Mary at our Grandma's house for Sunday dinners. Doe would sometimes be silly and talk in a squeaky, small voice that was fun. Sometimes she would try to sing Ava Maria in that small, squeaky voice that was even funnier.
I will miss her and cherish these memories of a good woman.
Love your niece,
