Delores was a lovely neighbor. I always enjoyed seeing her tending to her beautiful garden. It brightened our neighborhood. I've missed her since she moved to Texas but happy she was with caring family.

I was so sorry to learn of Dolores' passing. She was such a good friend and neighbor. She welcomed me to our community immediately, introduced me to the clan and showed me the ropes of senior living. My thoughts and prayers are with her family as they grieve. Fond memories always.
