Aunt Delores; we love you and we will really miss you!

For our family, she was the last of a generation and being my mom’s twin, there was a very special bond & connection for me. I don’t think I have an early memory that does not include her; She and my grandparents lived right next door to us. We did everything together, dinners at Grandma’s & Aunt Nancy’s, shopping at alexanders, church at Our Lady of Mercy or going to Orchard Beach on the # 12 bus.

When she met Uncle Frank and moved to “Massachuttes”; there were many tears and worries. But no need for that as she thrived, and made & joined a beautiful family there. I loved spending several summer weeks in Somerset. They were always excited to have me and show me the sites. We looked forward to their visits to the Bronx for holidays and I have so many nice memories of those years. I am so grateful for the memories of her with my mom, with my brother Michael.

To my cousins; I am so very sorry for your loss. You are all amazing; so devoted to her care. Every one of you; Chris, Randy, Joe, Ariana, Mackenzie and Nick.

Love to all. Barbara

Aunt Dolores will be sadly missed by many! She was always such a sweet aunt and was always ready to go to where the party was at!😊 She always loved being around family and friends. Myself and children will miss her deeply and will always remember the great card games, cookouts, and even some bingo nights we attended together♥️

Joe and I were inseparable as kids; and I still consider Joe my best friend even though we rarely see each other. Mr. and Mrs. Miozza always treated me with love and respect even though I probably didn't always deserve it. I have only warm and positive memories of Mrs. Miozza. Thank you for caring about me as a kid. Love David
