She was my very good friend for as long as I can remember. Her Mother and my Mother were best buddies at Liberty Methodist Church. We sat together in church,went to MYF outings together and double-dated together. We had such good times on the Ramey's screened-in back porch where all the young folks gathered. We stayed in touch all these years and I have marveled at her ablilty to fight "Lucifer" as she called her cancer. To her family I send my prayers for your healing. I will miss my dear friend so very, very much. Barbara Fulwood Wilkinson Moultrie,GA

I received a call today about Dolores. I am so sorry for your loss. May God bless you all. Dolores was a special friend to me and many others during our teen years. Sunday nights after church Dolores would fill there 9 passenger station wagon with kids for Mr. and Mrs. Ramey to take us to Finchers. Delores sat in the front seat between her parents giving instruction to all. What wounderful memories of simple times gone by.

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Dolores' spirit of faith, hope and optimism throughout her recent challenges have been an incredible inspiration and I'm sure contributed to her living as long as she did with this illness. Through your grief may you be comforted by her spirit.

Dear Bill, Catherine and Suzie, My heart just broke this morning when I saw Dolores' obit in the paper. She and I were friends in elementary and high school. Though we were apart for many years, we had just reconnected a couple of years ago when she returned to Macon during her mother's final days. I'm so glad that we were able to be together for those few times then. I loved Dolores and we had lots of fun together when we were growing up together. After you built your home in Greensboro, we didn't talk anymore, so I did not know that she was ill. I am so sorry for your loss. You will miss her terribly, but I know that you have many wonderful memories of a very special person and I pray that God will sustain you through these days and weeks ahead. Sincerely, Gerry Ryan Bolen
