Dee will be remembered for being the sweetest woman you would ever meet who was filled with loving kindness and exemplified I Corinthians 13 “Love is patient, love is kind… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres… Love never fails.” Her friends and family will miss her ever-present smile.

  • We can not make the trip to the funeral but am praying God comforts your hearts. Your mom means so much to me, a blessing in so many ways. She opened her heart to me, loved me and loved on me if that makes sense 🙂 She showed her love by giving – flowers- she filled the bed of our pick-up truck! She wrote their names down, by color and where needed set out in sunshine or shade. Then I’d open the mailbox and find a box of iris or day Lily bulbs! Only Dolores!!! We’d visit and she’d say, ” you’ll stay and eat with us won’t you? I’ll make a pie and we’ll have coffee :)” And she’d write! “Get your cup of coffee Linda, and we’ll have a letter visit”. Wonderful memories of a wonderful dear kind thoughtful friend. She was devoted to God and Bobby Joe and you, Sherri, and grandchildren. John 14, her favorite scripture comforts my heart, because I know she’s in her Father’s house now, and one day we will be there too, together for eternity. “And forever we will be with The One Who died for us. What a day, glorious day that will be”.
    Aunt Maxine said Dolores and I got along like a house on fire 🙂 true. Just look how much I’ve written 🙂 I walk around our place and see all the reminders of Dolores and her loving heart – Primrose, Lily of Valley, Mommy Bond Poppies.

    Sincerely, love Linda and Larry Bond
