Delores was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She always was welcoming, and loving to everyone who ever entered her home, or wherever she might be. I became part of her family by marriage, but to her I was family, and I felt the same way about her.

Delores never met a stranger, caring for the public on a daily basis. What a beautiful community servant. Her most valuable investment being her beautiful children. Delores can trust her prayers for God’s will to be done on earth ,as well as ,in heaven. She knew people were originally intended to live forever on earth; but they chose to rebel. We choose : Christ’s sacrifice with eternity in view. Jesus promised that the meek will inherit the earth. For those in heaven with Christ in the Kingdom, are ruling as kings and priests over the earth Rev 5:10. That beautiful government will restore paradise on earth. Even Jesus promised the criminal to be in Paradise . John 5:28,29 How exciting to greet Delores when she is awaken from “sleep” by the resurrection. Please be comforted:, “Enjoy Life Forever”.

I worked with Delores for many years at the bank. She was truly a sweetheart! Never an unkind word about anyone. God bless you Delores! I know Jimmy was there waiting to welcome you home.
