I am so sorry. I am getting over the flu or I'd be there. I was sitting here last night sharing some of the memories of us growing up and how she "tolerated" all of us. All of my love goes out to the three of you and your families. God Bless you all.

My cousin Dolores....you will be missed by so many. My regret is I didnt get to spend more time with you. I remember my mom telling me you were such a sweet little girl..that sweetest never left you. I will always remember you opening your heart and your home to us for the family reunions. May you enjoy being reunited with your loved ones.

Aunt Dolores was so special to my family. She was my Dad's big sister and when we lost him she showed me what family is all about with her kindness and caring for my family. She treated me like a daughter and loved my children like her own grandchildren. She had an unlimited capacity to show love that I hope to one day match. I will remember her all the days of my life and she has such a special place in my heart that it hurts to know I won't be getting those calls just checking on us. I never saw her angry or upset, she accepted what life gave her with grace. She loved without limits. God Blessed us with her and she will be so missed. Fly high now Aunt Dolores without pain or worries. And be with your family. Kiss my sweet grandmother and my father and all our other family members. Until we meet again, I LOVE YOU.
