Dear Jeanne and family, my heart is broken for you over the loss of your dear mother. I met Dolores at the St. Paul Senior Apartments when my parents lived there. She and Eddie became dear friends of my mom and dad. Dolores always had a beautiful smile on her face and I loved to hear her laugh. She was a lovely lady. Please know that I am praying for all of you. May you feel God's loving arms wrapped around you, holding you close and filling you with His peace in the days ahead.
