My heart is very saddened and I feel nothing but numbness for the loss of Aunt Dolores. She is in a much better place now looking down upon us. The pain and suffering is now gone for you Dolores. You will be missed by so many but keep your sense of humor and the love you had for all of us. Shower down upon us in tough times your love and happiness. All of us will meet again in the heavens above until then we will more than miss you. Love, John

As in Nature, life is not always fair. So true in this case as Lori was taken from family and friends too soon. Her gentleness and love of adventure, along with her beautiful smile will be missed by all. I held her as a baby and her cuteness shone through then and never left. Be at peace now and know that you are loved and will always be remembered♥️

Dolores always made my day when she came in for her usual Starbucks drink! I got to know her over the years of her being a regular customer. She was such a sweet woman and it brought me so much joy talking to her about the dogs she was walking. I’ll always remember those times we talked and when we ran into each other walking our dogs at the struble trail. You had offered to take a picture with me and my dog that day and it’s one of my favorites! We love Dolores! -Starbucks family

Oh, my sweet baby sister,

My heart is absolutely broken!     You were a such an amazing womarn, wife, mother, sister, grandmom, aunt and friend.  I cannot believe that I cannot text or facetime you early in the morning.  I text you a picture of a funny dog, blinking  his eyes, saying "I miss you" three days after your death.  I am so glad I was able to tell you the list of thirty-two memories of you and our adventures together.  Of all the times -  fun and meaningful - times that you reached out with your humor, thoughtfulness, kindness and exhuberance.  You were the one who made me a fabulous birthday hat, banners and a beautiful party for my 70th birthday.  Time and time again, you did so much for every member of our family.  It was so devastating not to be able to help you as the cancer ravaged your body...we were so helpless and hopeless as it took you slowly away from us. Ron was such a wonderful loving caretaker of you, as were our sisters, Joanne, Elaine and Suzy.  You are with a our Mom, Dad, sister, Marion, niece. Jenny, nephew, James, Grandpop and all who have gone before us,  You are in a place that is Beyond Dazzling!  I know that we will all join you when "Death" comes calling for us.  We, once again, will all  hug, kiss, laugh and rejoice in Oneness and Love.  I love you, dearest Lovely Lori, one of your ten siblings, Loretta Lucy

My heart is sad  for all of the Millers, friends & Ron who are left with the sorrow of losing my sweet Aunt. We were a military family so we weren't always around, but when we were, Dolores was always so kind to us; (Marion Miller was my mom & Lori's oldest sister). My love to all of you whose hearts are broken. God bless you! Love, Jenny

I knew Ron and Dolores through church. Although I only met Dolores a couple of times she was constantly in my prayers. Ron is my brother in Christ and on my heart breaks for him at this time however we are encouraged by the words of Paul to the Thessalonians chapter 4 verse 14 and 15. I know Dolores is with the Lord and that the Lord is comforting Ron. Human words at this time never seem to be enough rest in peace Dolores in the sweet arms of Jesus.

My heart is heavy with sadness. I loved our times together. I’ll miss our lunches, Lori. I miss hauling the boys to your house to have an awesome day with Aunt Lori and Uncle Ron. The boys LOVED visiting you and Ron. You always made visits with them FUN. You were the fun aunt. I’ll miss that. The boys will miss that. I’m thankful for having had you in our lives. From the very beginning, we connected, we were friends, and I adored you. I’m glad you have family to be with in heaven. I know you’ll look after the entire family and friends from above. You’ll certainly be missed. Love you, Lori. Rest in peace my dear friend❤️

I met Dolores at Lamancha and it was an instant friendship.  She was a kind person and I enjoyed getting to know her.  I feel very blessed having her in my life for the short time that I knew her.
