Dolores meant the world to me. I grew up with her in my life, she was like a sister. A finer person you could not find. She was (as they use to say ) a "jewel". I loved her and my family did too. We will have you in our thoughts along with Aunt Emma and Dolores. Patrick and Cecilia you took such good care of Dolores, it was a comfort knowing you were there for her. Yours with love, Betty
