Dear Francis and Family,
We are sorry to hear about the unexpected death of Delores. My fondest memories of Dee were her smile and laugh that brighten the room. We grew up together at MSD. She was always a fun-loving gal and was so thoughtful of everyone, staff and students alike. May she Rest In Peace!
