    Aunt Delores! When I was a young little girl You,Uncle Budd,Keith and Kathleen would come into town and it was a big deal! I thought you were a queen because of how soft-spoken and kind you were. Time gets away and wish I could have seen you again. But for now I will say ILOVE YOU and I will see you again.

    You were such a wonderful example of warmth and pure love that affected and shaped me most all of my life. I always enjoyed your chuckle and laughter in the funniest of moments and then your soft spoken wisdom in times of need and trouble. And, you have left a wonderful imprint on those who came to know and love you. May God bless you and your loved ones in heaven.
