I did not know Delores well but I certainly heard about her and the wonderful sister she was to Betsy. She was truly there for family and loved the their gatherings whether they occurred in Chicago or Winona. I send my love to her family. Judy Davis

I had the honor of providing care to Ms.Lercara for several years. I visited her at her home and met with Mary Ann, Catherine and Perla. As a family your devotion to your mom was quite evident. I am sure that she felt it every day. She is now at Peace. May the Lord Bless and keep you always. Sincerely, Dr. Wallace
