Joe, Rosemary, Robert and family,
This is a very belated condolence but I truly am so saddened by Dolly's passing. She was one of a kind. Such a loving, warm, caring and energetic mom. She was everything to her family and friends and treated everyone like they were family. I never once entered the Agosta house without a warm hug from Dolly and she made me feel like I belonged there. She was the best! You were so lucky to have had her in your life and her memories and spirit will remain with you forever. She is definitely your guardian angel as she has been all her life to her loving family. I can not imagine that house without her. I pass the house and it brings a smile to my face. So many fond you all so much, Angie Velardo Skorko

This is a very late condolence as I did not know about Dolly's passing. She was a very special lady that will always stand out in my life as a strong, loving and energetic woman. She loved her family with all she had and contributed so much to her community. You knew when you visited the Agosta household that Dolly was there to make you feel like family and I always did! I am sorry I was not at the service but my heart is with Joe, Rosemary and her family. You are all such a wonderful part of my childhood memories and life. Much love to you all.

Mom, you are now at peace and in heaven with all of your friends and family members. I miss you so much but wanted you to know that for the past two days it has been like the town of Croton On Hudson had shut down to attend your services. The tribute to you was amazing. You presented as the "Mom" that I will always love and remember. Thank you thousands of times over again for all that you have done for Robert, your Grand Sons and me over the years, even as ill as you have been. I love you so much....please rest in peace now....not a day will pass that I won't think of you and pray for you, for the rest of my own life.

Dear Rosemary,

Remember when Michelle and I stayed with Robert and you, and we went to your parents to swim? Your mom treated us as if we were her own grandchildren. She was so kind, and we have a lovely memory of that visit.

You are all in our prayers.

How blessed Donald, Kerri Lynn, Allie and I have been to have had Aunt Dolly in our lives! We remember with fondness so many special moments shared with her. Her contagious smile, love of the kitchen, pride of children and family, as well as her enthusiasm for bowling, will long be remembered! Those cold hands that often needed hand warmers...and gloves...never impacted her warm heart. Know that she will be missed very much and that our thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Joe and the entire family.

Joe, Rosemary, Robert & Family
Thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. May you be blessed in knowing/seeing how very many lives were touched by Dolly's love, kindness, generosity and humor. She was a one in a million and will be deeply missed. I am so sorry that I am not able to relay my condolences in person, but know that I am with you all in spirit during this time of grief and lifting you in prayer. Ro, I am praying for you especially,that the Lord, in his mercy, give you signs that bless your heart with peace in knowing your mother hasn't left you, she is just out of reach. ;) To the world you may be one person but to your Mom, you were the world. Be blessed in knowing Dolly is now resting in peace and you have a new guardian angel watching over you all.
