I will always remember Dolores for her quiet, sweet, gentle nature. She and my Mom were tablemates at Arbor House, and everyone knew that and did not sit at their table unless they were invited .
Dolores loved Bingo, (Mom did not), Dolores loved the morning exercise, (Mom did not), Dolores loved to take part in the games, (Mom did not). .. but you rarely saw one, that the other was not close by ! They were cousins so they had a lot to talk about. I will always remember the day your Mom had me take her back to her room after lunch, she had me come in and she had a gift for me! It was Christmas time, she knew how I liked to dress for the seasons, and there on the sofa was a Beautiful Christmas Vest ! I will cherish it always.
I loved your Mother, her sweet smile. May God bless you

and wrap you in His arms. My Love, thoughts and prayers, Nelda Morath Schreiber
