"After many years I just reconnected with Erick and learned of Dolores' passing. Of the many, many things I wish I could say, the most important is thank you. Thank you for years of great childhood memories on the farm in Berkley, especially the muffins, which I now make with my children while thinking of you and all the mornings I was lucky to share with your family.

"Dolores, you will forever be in my heart and fondest memories. I have searched my soul for forgiveness for any wrongdoings I may have shown. I will NEVER forget your laugh, your smile, your LOVING family at 166 Metropolitan Ave. You taught me so much, and I, like a fool, didn't learn. Ihave now.
May God keep you in his grace and loving care. My prayers and best wishes go to you and your family. You will always be loved and we thank you for your life lessons you bestowed on us all. I love you now and forever"

"Dearest Ferzoco and Bourke Families,
Doloreswas one of my most cherished childhood friends with whom I shared many memorable events teenage girls stumble through together. I tried many times to write a letter of condolence to you but couldn't find the right words or stop crying and babbling on long enough to finish. It is with a heavy heart that I send my long overdue expression of sympathy. I am so very sorry for your loss, but hope after your well needed time of sorrow you look to the joy, kindness and love that Dee brought to everyone she came in contact with. She was taken from you all too soon. May the grace of God, your wonderful memories and your amazing big, fat Italian family bring you comfort in knowing you are all surrounded with prayers, kind thoughts and love.
I cry when I think of Dolores. I don't know if it is because her death brings us closer to the reality that we are all vulnerable now, but my tears aren't only of sadness but also of the many happy memories that are forever etched in my heart of Dee's bigger than life personality and how much fun we had as the "girls on the hill." Thoguh many years have passed since I lived as your neighbor, I always ask Ernie, " How are the Ferzocos?" Eleanor, God Bless You.. You are the matriarch of a beautiful clan, and I so miss the days when Yvonne and Eleanors laughter resonated loudly on Metropolitan Avenue. I am sorry I was unable to attend my friend's services, but please convey my deepest sympathies and love to all.
Love, hugs and kisses,
Carol Mandra (Habeeb)"

"From my earliest memories, I remember Dolores as the one who could light up the room. Her smile, her laughter, her warmth, friendliness and love made everyone who had the pleasure of being with her feel that there was something very special in them. She always had time for a welcoming word and a big hug. My deepest sympathy's, thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. You now have a beautiful angel watching over you."
