Memories Timeline


  1. Mr. Merlin, Jennifer & Family, Ricky & Family, our sincere condolences for your loss. Mrs. Delores was a very sweet lady. We didn’t know her very long but the times we did visit with her at Jennifer’s home it was very pleasant. She will be missed. May God comfort you in this sad time in your life. Please know that we are here if you need a sounding board. Rest In Peace Mrs. Delores, we look forward to seeing you again. Love you all, Lee, Jerry and the Furay Family

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss I just found out about it at the time of the funeral as y'all pass by nobody has said nothing around the neighborhood God bless you all and hope you all okay

  3. Dolores always filled out visits with fun and laughter. Joey adored her. She made everyone she met feel loved and welcomed. I remember our shaving cream fight outside where she gave us all cans and said go get each other. I also remember her having chicken feet cooking on the stove and telling me it was voodoo. Then she laughed and said not really. She treated this City girl like family. I am sure Joey is waiting with open arms for her in heaven. You two party on together. Miss you both. Tisha Gotte ………….. Widow of Joey James Gotte, mom to Ashley Livian, Aaron James and Kimberly Michelle
