I think about Dolores frequently and smile when I think about how fun she was. My smile turns to sadness when I think of what she went through that day. I am friends with Tony, her dad--and my parents were really close to them. As a father, I don't know how I would live with the loss and I only hope that her spirit lives on as love.

To the Fanelli family Though the years have passed, the memories haven't faded.... Dolores's big smile, infectious laugh, and mischievous enthusiasm....our 'gang' of 6, the football games, bike rides to the park, Jones beach, visits to Connecticut, and Mrs Fanelli's pancakes with vanilla sauce...the bond of childhood friendships always stay with us. My thoughts and prayers are with you on this 10th anniversary. With Love, Ann

Dolores was one of those people you meet in your childhood and never forget. She was funny, athletic and had that great smile that lit up when she cracked one of those corny jokes ..And yes she also taught me and the rest of our 'group' to play football and have fun and enjoy life. I wish we had spent more time together after St. Pius, but life took us all in different directions. My condolences to all of her family, i am sure you miss her deeply.

Even after 6 years it is hard to know what to say. In the years that I worked with Dolores I honestly don't remember EVER seeing her in a bad mood. She almost always had a smile on her face and a mischievous twinkle in her eyes ... always looking like she was up to something and often was. For some reason I always loved the fact that I could always count on Dolores to get any obscure Seinfeld reference I came up with even if it was at her expense. You are still missed Dolores. The world is a bit sadder place without you but you still make me laugh when something reminds me of you.

Hi Aunt Dodo! I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and miss you. We all miss you! Wish you could have come to the Canary Islands/Fire Island this year. I know we would have had so much fun. We're all growing up, I mean i'm halfway through college! and I wish you could be here with us, but I know you've got our backs and i know you're watching us. I still can't believe it's been 6 years. Well I know I speak for all of us but we miss you and we'll see you! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!

I never knew Dolores but my heart goes out to her family and loved ones. I put in the word 'Family' next to relationship because we are all God's children despite the fact that we share the same last name. It's possible that we could be related too. We don't always understand why bad things happen to good people. We can only trust that God, in His infinite mercy, will bring a greater good from it. The events of September 11th show us that we still live in a very dangerous world. The best thing that any of us can do is to remain prayerful and stay close to God each minute of every day. We have a good friend in a high place looking out for us. May Dolores rest in eternal peace.

I worked with Dolores Fanelli in Brown Brother's Harriman on Wall St. and she was really a great, smart and fun co-worker. She was also a great athlete and really got the job done. Her infectious smile will be greatly missed. Today, 7/30/02 her name just popped into my head and I decided to search her out to say hi and was sadly shocked when I found her picture in the list. God bless her and her family. Guy Albanese

Dolores was the most loving, caring, thoughtful and fun-loving person I ever new. She was my strength and guide through life. Whenever I needed her she was there for me. She never yelled at me often, but when she did, I knew I was wrong. She was more than just a sister to me. While growing up she treated me like a daughter. When I got older she was an understanding friend ready to give solid advice. Not a day goes by that I don't want to share my thoughts or experiences with her. Losing her is a loss that is too great for words.

Delores was an exceptional person and I am grateful I had the opportunity to work with her for a brief period of time. She always made me laugh when I spoke with her. She was so quick with her wit and we shared a similar style and sense of humor. She was always very frank and open in her dealings with me and I appreciated her candor. I will always remember the time she went with a group of us visiting from Portland, OR to a Yankees game. She never stopped teasing me about cheering for the visiting team as loudly as she rooted for the Yankees. Though I hadn't worked with her for some time when she was taken from us, I still think of her often. In particular I remember her refreshingly direct manner and wonderful sense of humor. Remembering her laugh always brings a smile to my face. My deepest condolences to her family. She is missed.

Dolores had the biggest smile and the greatest laugh I have ever heard. When I think of Dolores I feel so sad that she is gone but so happy I had the chance to work with her and to have known her. Dolores made every meeting fun. She is greatly missed. My deepest condolences to her family.
