My Big Sister Delores, was always my protector, my friend, my confident, she was intelligent. Hell of a paddle ball player. Loved music and dancing. She was the first person who taught me how to put on fake eyelashes. She was the Queen of Shopping and helping me spend my money. I Will Always Love her and miss her dearly. Your Sister Shirley
