    I was saddened at the news of Delores’ passing away.

    Delores was a joy to be around; we shared many a laugh together whether it be as co-workers at the Park Café many years ago or at family gatherings and social events. We danced one time; as the waltz came to an end, I spun her out. Spinning back towards me, she made a graceful backward dip. I failed to catch her by the waist, and so down she went with her beautiful legs flung up in the air! Chagrined, I helped her back up only to burst out laughing so hard together! Good times and good memories.

    Delores, or “Hey Lucht” as I’ve taken to calling her, will always have a warm spot in that happy place of my heart.

    With love and sympathy in your time of loss.
