Your family and home were my second home when I was a child. What fun sharisse and I had swimming and playing in the woods every day with both of our moms watching over us.
Just the other day I was talking to my husband, Allen, about how much fun we had and I wondered how you were all doing.
I got the call tonight from my sister, Diane, to let me know about Dolly. my heart sank as I have such wonderful memories.
I remember her getting ready for a catering event and how great her food was ... yum!
Vito, Sharisse and Rick -I remember your wife/mother to be a beautiful and lovely person in every way.
You have my deepest sympathies and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I think of you often, even if I don't reach out and show it like I should.
