  4. Wayne, Brad, Carol, Maari, Josh:
    I am so sorry about Delores, she will be missed by everyone who lives she touched. Had it not been for her kindness and generosity I would have never met her & Wayne. About 10 years ago I used to stop at McD’s for a pop and to read the paper before work, one day she said would you like to come sit with us? After that I stopped everyday before work to visit my wonderful new friends. It was so nice to see her smiling face and she would greet me with a hug and kiss. She always had coupons for me and never missed sending out a card for my birthday and every occasion. I will miss her dearly. You were so blessed to have her in your lives.
