Tito, Ammie, Ron and Debbie,
When i saw this it tore through my heart. I will always remember Dolores, as she always
was there for me. The good times working at the hospital, and the smile she always had. I could tell it was a genuine smile. She is spending Christmas with Jesus this year, but make no mistake, she will be with you all. May God be with you and comfort you.

With Love
Carl Martschinske & Family

Tito, Ronnie, Debie and Aimee, I am so very sorry for your loss. Delores (Lolly) was such a kind, loving woman. It was a beautiful gift to our family to have Delores & Tito visit with us in October and we are grateful for that special time. Lolly touched the hearts of so many in her lifetime. She always had a smile to share and her laugh was so contagious. She had a beautiful heart and looked for the good in all. I will hold you all in my prayers during this hard journey. I hope you will "feel her presence" around you always and I hope you find peace in knowing she is now an angel in heaven watching over all of you.
