One more angel has flown home to be with the Lord.
May the Lord our God comfort all those that are losing a dearly loved vessel.
Dolores was my very first employer. I used to catch the South Shore bus from Gary, In to Chicago, IL when the Smith family lived on Woodlawn Ave. I was around 13 years old at the time. I have many fond memories that will always be cherished.
