    I just learned of Dolores’ passing and I would like to express my thoughts with her family. Back in September of 1980, Dolores trained me at The Continental. I was always grateful for her willingness to share her expertise with me. She even gave me a ride to and from work when my car was being repaired. May she rest in Heavenly peace.
