I am sending my sincere condolences to all of my counsins. Gerri, Gloriia, Jeanette, Barbara and of course Marie. I had a lot of fun with Dolores over the years. Although she was a bit older than me we always seem to click. I am deeply saddened by her passing and thinking of her constantly. She was a great person and so easy to talk to. She will be missed greatly. Rest In Peace Dolores and I'll catch you on the other side.

My heartfelt sympathy to your entire family. Dolores was a friend of mine and we shared many good times together in her younger years. Including going to the poconos with her sister Marie. She was a great person.... Sincerely, Joan Daniels Denesvich
