  1. Greetings family. Mark & I are at our home in Mesa and unable to attend Aunt Dolores service tomorrow. Prayers & hugs to you all.

  2. It was a privilege to sing for Dolores’ funeral yesterday. Over the many months I led hymn-sings at Riverview, she was always there. I loved this dear gal! She & I had a weakness for fabric and I was pleased to supply many bags of yardage for her on-going quilting projects. When I’d bring her a bag of cotton pieces, she was like a kid in a candy shop…how we both loved fabric! What a sweet gem at Riverview! So enjoyed the tribute shared by her daughter at her memorial service. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to share in her life. What an awesome PIECEMAKER she was!
