    Heartfelt condolences to Dolores” family especially Shawn (my godson). Sorry I’m unable to travel at this time but I am happy to know that I was able to visit her in NY a few years ago and more recently in March this year right before her 70th birthday. I will never forget our days of pitching marbles when we were young girls (8) and Aunt running us inside, the nights you slept with us as you were afraid of the dark. I have so many fond memories that I will treasure and I know you’re going to be one “fashionable Angel”. RIP D!!
