Dolores, you were my dad's rock. You put the twinkle in his eye. You gave him strength to find his niche, so he could work and create and invent. You were his guiding star. You were his partner so he could see the world. You gave my sister and me things our mother could not; adventures, clothes, food. You taught us to be strong. You were a friend to many and they loved you back. You were honest and generous. Thank you Dolores, for all you were. May you rest in peace.

We were so fortunate to know dear Dolores. She joined our Hoofer Tap group and was a real asset. We loved hearing her stories of her life adventures. Dolores lived a full life. May she rest in peace. What a terrific lady, and she will be missed.
