Aunt Dolores has been an inspiration to all who experienced her strength and grace. She was God’s Angel here among us, and while we weep for our loss today, she has given us a lifetime of blessings. The Lord has called His Angel Home. We Love You

A most remarkable and loving person that we had the pleasure of knowing. The world would be a much better place if there were more like her. She is where she wants and needs to be now....a place of peace and contentment. May you hold her in your heart and see her in your dreams....
