Mere words can't express the sorrow and loss we feel at this time. She was my right arm for almost 50 years.
Helped me raise my kids through some troubled times, handled business down-swings like a pro and always with a sweet, loving spirit. The kids are grown now but she was Aunt Delores and they always looked forward to the Christmas treats she made for them, and so many more things she did. Never forgot a birthday, or graduation and always kept up with their children. She is irreplaceable and we miss her.

My kids always wanted to go to their Uncle Don's office to see Miss Delores when we would come back to Chipley to visit. She made them feel special & always was so glad to see them. The kids are grown now, but they still remember her.

Delores was one of my sister cousins. I have so many wonderful memories of my happy place with her and the "girls" laughing, eating, playing cards, and reminiscing about family and times past. She had a heart as big as all outdoors. Delores will be sorely missed but will live on in my heart. Those of us who have received Jesus as Savior will see her again in heaven. Are you a believer? Receive Jesus and be saved. I'll love you forever, Delores. See you soon, sister cousinn
