    Dear loved ones of Delores, I was so glad to know Delores when I worked at Prairie Ridge. She was always positive with a kind word to everyone and willing to try all the activities! I was shocked to hear God had taken her to be with Him. May God heal your hearts and May your many good memories warm your hearts when you think of Delores.
