Memories Timeline


  1. I send the family of Dolores my heartfelt sympathy…I always loved her..I used to take her to church with me back in the early 80's before I moved away from home..She will always be remembered with fond memories of the years we were all growing up in school together in Iowa..Back then we all knew each other..I know she loved the Lord and I thank God for that..It gives me peace and I pray the family has peace as well…She is in Heaven…because of her faith in Christ….

  2. One time I was with Maw Maw in the car and we picked up Aunt Dolores from the store or somewhere. I was sitting in the back seat before she got in the car and her vision wasn't the best at the time. I stayed quiet and she didn't notice me the entire ride back to her house. Once we got there and were unloading the car, I grabbed a plastic bag and the noise scared the crud out of her! We laughed about that for so long! He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man. ~ Antoine de Saint-ExuperyYou are all in my thoughts.
