  1. To my Connecticut FAMILY, In 1963 I was blessed by God when my parents chose your parents as my Godparents. I could not have asked for two people who were not related by blood to become beloved family to me. I have the BEST memories with you all. My heart was broken 24 years ago when I lost my Godmother suddenly. Now my heart is broken again. At the same time my heart is filled with the joy of my memories and knowing that my “Uncle Dom” is now reunited with the love of his life, my “Aunt (Ant) Ro. Two people who could not have been more perfect! Who would have thought that 2 couples who met on their honeymoon would become BEST friends for life and made sure that the kids carried on that love and friendship. My childhood was the absolute best because of our relationship. I will be forever grateful to my Godparents for everything they taught me about true friendship and love. Uncle Dom, please give my Godmother the biggest hug and kiss and know that my love for you runs deep. I will treasure every memory and every minute we spent together. May you rest in eternal peace in God’s paradise. Love you always and forever, Dolores
