    Dear Kris, Terri, Aunt Donna, and all of your family….
    So sorry for your loss. Although I didn’t know your mom/sister very well, I always enjoyed my visits with her…finding her interesting to talk to and appreciating her love of animals. I’m so glad that my ukulele group had the opportunity to play Christmas music for her last year! I think of her often when I see the beautiful huge rock she gave me years ago when visiting her in Hornell. It was so generous of her to give it to me because she knew I liked it so much! I’ll bet there are beautiful rocks in heaven too! Love and hugs to all…..Valerie

    I will miss Dolores very much! I have known her for well over 20 years and considered her a dear friend. Her animal stories were always plentiful and dramatic :). The work she did on our flowers at the office was always appreciated and beautiful! She would make me laugh so often. We had a couple of serious talks too. I am thankful for her. I know that her family will smile at the many memories they made together!

    I will miss my breakfast conversations with Delores at SJH! Although I only knew her for a short while, I am so happy to have had her as a friend. We talked about flowers, gardening, and the rival sports teams we loved. On many days, Delores was the highlight of my morning visit to 2H. Rest in peace, Dee, my friend.
