    I have wonderful memories of good times with your MomAnd Dad. Dolores was always so gracious, thoughtful and patient while Don told unending stories. God’s Blessings on both

    Mom and Dad (Karen and Al Dunn) always looked up your parents whenever they were in the Olivia area. They always had a tender spot in their hearts as Don and Dolores were always good to them. We were sorry to hear of Dolores’s passing and we will pray for you and her. She was a very thoughtful woman.

      Thank you. The Dunns held a special place in their hearts

    Your mom was very special to me. I was one of her godchildren and every birthday, whether in person when we were young or almost 60 years later, your mom would make sure I had a birthday cake. She baked it while I was young and in later years (including last year) ensured there was a birthday cake on the cover of the card she sent to me. She always made me feel special, like the special person she was to me. She will be missed.

    My sincere sympathy to the Haubrich family. I looked up to my cousin Dolores. She had a contagious smile and laugh that always portrayed welcome and fun. She always seemed to be taking care of others.

    I thought. I think about you in my heart.
