    I am truly sorry about the loss of Aunt Delores. Most of my childhood was spent around Aunt Delores and R.O because my parents hung out with them almost every weekend. I have many fond memories of her, but especially the ones of our family camping trips make me smile. She will always be remembered and loved.
