    In Don and Dolores, I was blessed to have some of the best in-laws anyone could ask for in a marriage! We said goodbye to Don twelve years and now Dolores has joined him in Heaven. There are few people I respect more than these! Shelly and I will miss you, Dolores, but know you are healthy, young and happy again.

    What a pleasure to know Dolores and do her hair. We had a lot of good times with Kelly and Shelly in the Salon. She was always such an encouragement to me. Her Strong faith in God was a testimony of her life. So blessed to know her.
