To Sean and Chrissy and all of Dolores' family,
This is a special lady who is on to the next part of her journey. What I remember, of course, is her smile. ..and her fortitude...and her wonderful sense of humor. I had the good fortune to share a yoga class with her last year and I so admired her laughter and determination. She is one of the strongest ladies it has been my honor to know. God bless the whole family.

We will cherish the times we spent together on holidays and other events. Your beautiful smile and upbeat attitude will be remembered always. You will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

May God's angles keep watch over you until we meet again.
