Cheryl, Gary & Family,
I was saddened when I heard about the passing of your mom. I will always remember her laugh and loving smile. Also all the Christmases sitting around your table reminiscing about the old days. She will be sadly missed. Heaven has gained one more angel and has been reunited with the love of her life, Uncle Brownie.
“RIP” Auntie Dottie

My Heartfelt Sympathy

Deb, Cheryl, Gary, Dania, Bianca & Gianna,

We are so very sorry for your loss. We remember her , having waited outside S.O.S every day picking up her grandchildren from school. We had a lot of laughs out in the school yard and Lou used to tease her and make her laugh. May memories of her bring a smile to you and warm your heart always.

Our deepest condolences,
Lou, Denise, Louie and Nicole Barone

Cheryl, Gary and family. We are saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing. Auntie Dottie was so sweet and kind, we loved her sense of humor which Dania showcased on her FB for all to enjoy.
We were so blessed to have visited with you in late summer of 2017.
I am including a picture from your parents’ wedding. My twin brother Don J. and I were lucky to be in their wedding. Uncle Brown was our Godfather.
Comfort and peace as you say goodbye to your Mom but but assured you will be reunited in Heaven.
Love, Cousins Claire & Steve ❤️❤️

Auntie Dottie was a kind woman, who had a great sense of humor and kindness. Her leaving us will be felt for a long time. My condolences to Cousin Cheryl and Cousin Gary and their families. I knew I was always welcomed in Aunties home. She, as well as the rest of our family, were the foundations that made us who we are -- loving and kind. God rest her soul. She is with Uncle Brownie now and her family too.

First off, what a beautiful picture of Aunty. It truly represents the kind of person she was and will always be. Although the covid pandemic robbed many of us opportunities to visit, I will be forever grateful that I was a doggiesitter for Steve. It allowed me time to spend with Aunty. I enjoyed our conversations immensely. She adored her family and everyone knew that but also, she was adored! How could you not love her? Always so positive and visiting her was like getting a concentrated dose of confidence. I love you Aunty. Fly with the angels. You were one of a kind. Your niece Jackee
