I've just learned of the loss of my friend, Dolores Tubbs. We were next door neighbors in Delmar, and our friendship continued during her stay at the Moran Home in Wynantskill. Dolores was fond of my therapy dog, Silvie, and enjoyed our visits to the Moran Home. Dolores and I shared our passion for being on the water - me in a kayak or canoe, while she preferred the motorized version. She shared photos of her boating adventures with me, and spoke warmly about those younger days. We learned that we both had the same favorite pizza joint. I didn't mind driving to Red Hook to pick up a delicious pizza pie to bring to Dolores...watching her eat and enjoy it with such such gusto gave me such pleasure. I loved to make Dolores laugh which was was easy to do. Silvie and I shall miss our get-togethers.

Absolutely enjoyed getting to know Dolores - we had so much fun in our genealogy group. Loved her sense of humor and that she had no filter in her words. My condolences to the family. Lynne Collins, Spinney at Van Dyke
