So sorry for your loss. Dolores was an amazing woman, who made my 5 year old’s day every time we walked to school in the morning. I was in awe of just how much love she had for all the kids she helped

So sorry to hear of Delores passing. I’ve known her and her family for many years as we grew up in the same neighbourhood. We had many laughs together working as crossing guards. May she rest in peace

She was a wonderful part of my morning and afternoon as I walked my kids to school. She was always ready with a smile and a laugh. You will be missed, our walk to school will never be the same.
