Delores was a fellow member of the Body of Christ. She was a child of our Heavenly Father. She was a worker with us in the Kingdom of God. As we say farewell, we remember that it was St. Paul who wrote: "We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will take back with Jesus those who have died believing in Him."
May the memory of Delores live on in our hearts.
