  • Andrea my heart goes out to you and your family. Your Mom was a sweetheart and she will missed many.

  • I was thinking about Dolores today and was sad to hear of her passing. My mom and I worked with her in the shoe department at Filenes. I was thinking of her because she crocheted me a beautiful blanket as a wedding gift 23 years ago and I use it all the time. She was an absolute hot ticket and her constant sarcasm made me laugh. I send my love to her daughter Andrea whom she talked about all the time.
    My mother and I will continue to think of her often.

  • Andrea, you probably do not remember me. I was a friend of your sisters when we were in elementary school in Quincy when you all lived on Rodman Street. Ann Marie and I played Barbies together faithfully until you all moved away from Quincy. In fact, my parents named my baby sister Andrea, and you were so sure that my parents named her after you, and maybe they did! I remember your mother back then as very kind, loving, and quiet. She made the most delicious cookies called Queens Biscuits and she was gracious enough to share that recipe with my mom. For the longest time, we used the original recipe written in your mom’s handwriting. And every time my mom made them I thought of your family. Just last month, I made them and, I thought of my mom and your family as well. Memories – just like that Queens Biscuits recipe – stand the test of time. I hope you all have had a wonderful life. I truly remember your mom, as being so sweet to us girls with our Barbies. So loving and kind. Funny how a memory can come back to you as if it were yesterday. May your mom sleep in heavenly peace. And I hope you always have sweet memories of her as I do. Prayers and Blessings to you.
