I always remember Dolores with a smile on my face. Her and her family’s dedication to Bobby was so admirable. Their home was open to many friends of Bobby’s, especially on his birthday. Much joy was shared there. There were so many adaptations to their home to accommodate Bobby’s limitations...so creative. Dolores tirelessly advocated for Bobby. She was a wonderful support and inspiration to other parents. It was a privilege to know her.
My condolences to her family for her loss.

Dear Bob,
Dolores was a wonderful lady. What a loving mother to Bobby! I loved watching her talk to him and make him laugh. The bond among the three of you was so close and loving. It must be so difficult at this time. I pray that God give you the sustaining strength to be there for Bobby now. If there is anything I can do, please email or call.
Sincerely,
Michelle Kostetsky
