Love to Dolores, my mother-in-law, who passed from this scene February 10, 2015. Dolores’ father was Frank Fairfax, whose can claim the status of first hiring Dizzy for about a year in Philadelphia after Diz first left the farm for the city and the Muse. The history is in the books on the subject, and Diz was a family friend with whom I had the pleasure of hanging with on one occasion.
Dolores was a women who was selected as a Black beauty queen the year Anita Bryant won the title of Miss America.
Dolores was a most positive person, who sought the beauty and happiness that life could bring — and on whose couch sat a pillow embroidered with the words, “Screw the Golden Years!”
RIP Dolores. Love you, always.
