One story I remember my mom sharing of Aunt Delores was told my Uncle Dale. I was about the first trip he made to Indiana some after they married and Billy was a baby. When they arrived someone asked Delores how the trip was and Dale said that she wouldn't know, because she was laying in the back seat and every once in awhile would raise up see the speedometer and pass out. It was always a joy to visit them. Aunt Delores always tried to make you comfortable.

Mary, Roy and the rest of the family, please know that your family in Indiana are thinking of you.
