    Footprints in the Sand

    One night I dreamed a dream.
    As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
    Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
    For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
    One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

    After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
    especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
    there was only one set of footprints.

    This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
    “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
    You’d walk with me all the way.
    But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
    there was only one set of footprints.
    I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

    He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
    Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
    When you saw only one set of footprints,
    It was then that I carried you.”

  8. I cannot express what this beautiful soul meant to me. She was our rock, our anchor, our voice when we struggled to make meaning in our lives. All I had to do was call her and all of a sudden nothing was as bad as I thought. I will miss those calls. I wish I could call her in heaven. I know she is in the presence of God. Favorite, I will cherish all the memories we gave made. I love you more than I can express. I am so blessed to have been part of your life. I love you.

  9. I always loved talking to you whenever we were at Rhonda”s parties. May you Rest In Peace knowing how much you were loved in your lifetime

  10. I only met Dolores this past August 2018, but she left an impression on me I won’t soon forget. Hugs to you all.

  11. My Aunt was a sweet, loving woman. We shared some great times growing up with Lowell’s family and Ken’s family at Jackson Lake. Holidays were always special with all the families. As the years passed she still had a welcoming smile anytime you saw her. I’m so glad I visited her last year in Denver, I could feel the love she had for me with her smile. She was a beautiful creation from God. Sending our love to my cousins and their families. She was proud of all of you!

  12. Delores was such a loving, lovely lady that always brought a smile when she was with me. I will miss being in her company and will always remember our fun moments. She will be missed by everyone that she touched. Delores will always be with us in her beautiful spirit looking down on everyone she touched.
    My love and prayers for the entire family.

  13. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Delores. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
