Such a beautiful altar everyone created for Dolores... so fitting.

Leonard's card and single rose with gold ribbon is perfect for her.

Thank you so much to you three, Willy, Wijbe, and Henning, for carrying our love with you to her husband, children, and other loved ones.

It remains impossible to believe she's gone.

Rest with love and peace, dear Dolores <3.

We didn't know Dolores personally, but it is obvious, that here is such much love for her, so intense feelings, it's truly moving to see.

Thank you Willy, Wijbe and Henning for representing all of us at Dolores funeral.
Nothing can replace her in her family hearts, but knowing how many people loved her, even Leonard, will release them in such sad moments.

I also remember meeting Dolores first in krakow and then Hydra. I remember her sitting with a group us very relaxed in her chair with a somewhat slightly bemused grin. I was told that she spoke little English and people communicated with her in whatever understanding they had of German.This being said she caught me off guard one evening after a group of us had dinner at this lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. I was wrapping up some left overs in a paper napkin and her heard this voice ask in clear English "is that for breakfast?". I turned and it was Dolores. I told her I was taking it for the cats and she nodded and smiled.

I will alsways remember her for that as well as everyone in the forum family being so fond her and the feeling seeming to be mutual.
RIP in Dolores. It was a pleasure meeting you.

I am sorry I never met Dolores but from reading all the posts about her it is obvious she was loved by so many.
I am sorry for the loss of such a unique woman and am sending my thoughts to her family and friends and all of you who knew her personally.

I am so sorry to hear that Dolores is gone. I have known her for such a long time now, I cannot even remember where it was that we first met. That is the wonderful thing about these Cohen friendships. We are like a big extended family that cover the world. I do remember Dolores and her hat in Hydra. That was always fun. But I know that was just one country I met her in, and I know there were several more. We had a great time together

I am sorry that I have taken some time to share my feelings. I have not been in the best of health myself.
