    I will miss Delores with all my heart. She was a wonderful grandmother to me and living with her shortly while living in Arkansas was a great time in my life. Along with her sitting down to play the piano or her delcious meals she would make…to Traveling around on trips with her was fun. She always had a sense of adventure and I’ll miss her laughter. The comfort I reach to in times like these is the fact she knew where she was going with the upmost faith in God. I’ll treasure all the memories I have and miss her so much. Love you Delores!

    We called Delores “Mamaw”. There was no one else like Mamaw. She was a blessing to everyone. She loved everyone and would have her heart on her sleeve and care for others. I will never forget all the memories I had with her. She was the best grandmother a grandchild can ever ask for. Mamaw knew where she was going. I know shes up there having a blast on the piano in Gods orchestra. I miss you and love you so much.
