  • “Dolly” and Danny became my Godparents 65 years ago in Scituate, MA. She and my mother were the strongest women in my life. I always gave Dolly the respect I knew she silently asked for, and was rewarded by her unquestionable love and support throughout my life. I will always remember our giggles and hearty laughs together most of all. But my heart is full knowing that Dolly and Danny are together again, a match made in Heaven long ago. –Annette Langley Markward
