  1. The most amazing woman I have ever known in my life. She was more than just my Grandmother, she was a constant source of unconditional love, continuous support and neverending forgiveness. She truly never got back what she gave. I would be a lucky woman if I grow up to be 1/10th of the woman Delores Latham is. I believe with all my heart and soul that every person she touched was blessed. I love you Grandma.

  2. What can I say about this woman that became “Grandma Latham”…..I was closest to her back when she was just Mom. Not my Mom, really, but Dick, Terry and Connie’s Mom. She was a big part of my growing up. She was someone I could talk to, anytime, and did alot. She taught me patience with my own parents when I was young and knew it all. She taught me to fold sheets! Weird, I know, but isn’t that appropriate. I will miss her, she was important to me and yes, she always gave more than she got. (fixin) OWK

  3. I truly share your sorrow. Aunt Dolores will be greatly missed. I know in my heart that she is having a joyous reunion with our other loved ones who have gone before, and we’ll see them all again when it is our turn.

  4. Some of my fondest memories of Aunt Dolores was the comfort and love I always felt in her arms. Her warm hugs were the best. She was a sweet wonderful lady and will be greatly missed by all of us. I did not get to see her that often later in her life, but I did have some long chats with her on the phone. She was always so thoughtful and very giving to all of those around her. I love you Aunt Dolores. Love Always, Susie

  5. DEE, was very special to both of us…I met her over 40 yrs ago, when I first became good friends with Dick..and my husband worked with her yrs later..He always enjoyed working with her at Gordons Auto Parts, She use to call him a BRAT…She will be very much missed…Our prays go out to Terry, Dick, Connie and their whole family..

  6. I really do not know the words to express my feelings about Mom, perfect comes to mind, but no one is perfect. I think she came close. She was the most giving and caring person I have evre known in my life. I will miss her beyond words. I love you Mom, now and forever.

  7. it was a wonderful service. We were very glad we were able to attend. To show honor to a wonderful lady and to be able to let her children and family know how special we all felt she was… God bless you all….
