  1. You have my condolences on the loss of your dear Mother. I’m not able to attend the services. She was my friend, I will miss her, as will Mt. Olive. Sincerely, Inez Foye

  2. To my step father Roger and his sister. I know that you loved you mother with all your heart. I know that this loss is a great one. We are here for you and know that we love you.

  3. I saw Dolly last time I was in Calif in Sept 2009. We had a very nice visit that I will always treasure. She was a special to my Uncle Bob Amano and a special to myself. I have tried to call her recently and had no luck.. now I know why. I will miss her and send my thoughts & sympathies to the family. One of my fondest memories of Dolly is the house in Hollywood and the big grand piano and just her laugh and just her. Kristel
