    Thank you so much for sharing Delores with me.  She always smiled a welcome when we met at various celebrations.  She was gracious about sharing everyone's name and connection.  She would even tell me the names twice when I forgot.  She was such a warm and lovely woman.   I will remember her.    Kelly Lytle

    I was so sorry to hear of Delores' passing.  I remember her sitting at the piano singing "Going to Take a Sentimental Journey.  She was a lovely cousin.  Carol Weichers Niehaus, Oak Ridge, TN
