Not sure what to say?

My sincere sympathies to all family and friends of Delores. She was my roommate for 4 years at Penn State, my sorority sister and maid of honor at my wedding. Sadly she did not share her last addresses with me so we fell out of touch. I will forever remember her with love and wonderful memories.

I will forever miss Delores. As best friends, we grew up together and stayed in touch when we could through the years. Deepest sympathies to Christina and Ruth and all who loved her. Rest in peace dearest friend until we meet again.

In Sympathy- to Ruth- Linda and Lew Elicker were on the Italy trip with you. I was in school with Delores as I told you when traveling. I will try to find your phone or get in touch with me at 717-428-1410.
