Janet, Joanne, & Meg,

So sorry about Aunt Dolores. Debbie called me yesterday. I have so many memories of all of you through the years;, no matter what state you lived in (PA,CT, or MI). Aunt Dolores was kind and sweet. Later in the years, my mom and Aunt Dolores would rent down the shore together. They traveled together to Martha's Vineyard and went to New York to visit Billy. They were very close and had a good time together. Thinking of all of you at this time of sorry.

Love & Peace, Cousin Peg
