God Bless you, Delores. I know you are walking the gardens of heaven with Our Lord.
Dodie created so many wonderful childhood memories for me. We met when I was just out of 2nd grade and I was walking around the neighborhood knocking on doors to see if there were any kids to play with. Rod was washing his car in the driveway and told me to go on in. Dodie invited me in to see their new baby, Michael! I'm sure she got tired of me coming over to play with the baby but she never showed it. We were fortunate to have them as neighbors for many year. I knew I wanted to grow up to be just like her. She was a wonderful lady!
My deepest sympathy goes out to her family. May you find peace in the happy memories!
