Dear Rideout Families, Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers at this time. We knew Dolores through our time at Oliver School and Venture Productions when Jeremy was in our classes. Also remember Mandy as she attended school activities with Jeremy and Mom. Always enjoyed conversing with Delores.
