Our condolences for your loss. My wife and I both worked at Rich's for a long time and enjoyed working with all of you. I always tried to make Delores laugh whenever I ran into her. I hope she went with a smile on her face. Dave & Connie Baumann

My deepest sympathy to your entire family. I remember your Mom dancing at someones wedding, she really enjoyed herself. And I remember that she gave new significant others of her children a bit of a hard time at first due to she was so protective and loved her kids so. Perhaps it was her way of refining us goofy souls (especially Wade, kidding)...as a mother myself now, I understand this...this was her way of showing that "her children meant a lot to her and they had better be treated well"...and I remember the softest side to her, the times when I saw her with grandchildren. She was a career girl before the term was coined, and a very hard worker at that. Julie used to tell me her Mom would drop her off at school in her PJ's. Now as a night shift worker myself I admit to doing this to my own kids and I did one better...I ran around my car and did the Chinese fire drill when dropping Cody off at High School one morning in front of his buddies...and a girl he took to winter ball...well her father saw this and called me at home laughing about the whole thing later that morning. We all learned something from your Mom. I thought of each of you as I read the names of her family, each now is dealing with their loss in their own way, remember you have one another and friends and family here to lean on. Each and every one of you are in my prayers and thoughts. In Peace Connie (Heisel) Palm
