Oh sweet Aunt Delores. How sad I am at your passing. You and Uncle Dale were always so good to Dan and i. I loved stopping for coffee on our way out of town to head back to the cities after our visits there in Watertown. Even after Uncle Dales passing we loved seeing you at the Senior center or at Hy-Vee. Give kisses to my mom, Donna Jean, when you get there and don't forget to tell all the others how much they are missed. Thank you for you cards and your kind words through the years. Rest in peace sweet one.
