Everyone would want to know.. "Is Aunt Dolores going to be there?" Because she was that special. Fun, funny, and kind. You just wanted to be around her. Her passing leaves a hole in the family. This is a huge loss. Love and hugs to everyone missing her.

All though I only meet Dolores a few times. I can say it was my pleasurer to have a nice conversation with her. God has another Angel at his side.

Aunt Dee - you were an absolute doll and will be so missed. I will hold dear all the good times we’ve had. Hell, I don’t think there was ever a bad one. You were always so much fun - always smiling and laughing. You were a fabulous mom and raised a beautiful family. You were the best sister to my dad and mom♥️ Above all, you were a fantabulous Aunt and confidant to me. My husband and children adored you as much I did. We hope you’re dancing and raising Cain!!

Mrs C. I will forever remember the fantastic times we all had in your kitchen on Fairmount Ave. You always welcomed me into your home and life. I won’t ever forget your humor and wit. You are revered by your family and that speaks volumes about you. A Schlitz toast to you. 🍻
