We, Doris, Victoria, Christine, Beverly and Sonny, send our sympathy and prayers as you mourn the loss of your mother and grandmother. Since I (Doris) am the only one of my family living in St. Marys, it was always a delight to see Delores at lunch with Shirley and their friends.

Dear Debbie, Gary, Bruce, Bill, and Laura and family. We would like
to send our condolences, and we will all miss your mother very much.
We really enjoyed the trip that we took up there with Tom and Debbie and we got to play golf with Delores and boy was that ever a challenge on that kind of a course with the hills and valleys. We really had a great time at her home and being with her and the rest of the family. Sending hugs to all of you. John and Phyllis Green
