Hey Sandy

I am sad to hear about Delores passing . The last time she came into ABC&E , I got the chance to sit & chat with her. She updated me on you & your family, she let me know about how her life was going and she talked about your Dad.

She made me smile that day. She was a good little sis and I will never forget her.

Peace be with you and all of your family,

Hanaa, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. You and your family are in my thoughts!! She was a good woman, mother, and person. I'm glad I got the chance to know her!
