I will remember Delores fondly. She was easy to talk with and had an easy laugh. She was so stylish in her appearance and in her home decor. She liked to shop Bon Ton and Watt & Shand. I often stop to talk to her when she was working at the mall. She always had a ready smile and a kind word. I will miss her. My condolences to all who loved her.
