    Although I never had the honor of meeting Mrs. Lisanti, I heard all the wonderful stories about her cooking , baking and taking care of her children and grandchildren. I heard she was truly a staple in the community and neighborhood. I have the honor and I am blessed to have a close friendship with her amazing loving Daughter Maria. I pray that GOD above blesses this Family and that He sends his Angels to watch over all of them. I pray that He heals and fills their hearts with love and healing.

      I had the great pleasure of meeting Dolorinda once last year. I was so very impressed by the zeal for life and love of her family and God. I thought how blessed she us and her family because of her.

      I was deeply saddened to hear she left us. May she rest innpeace in the arms of God and her family comforted by the love we receive from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    Una Super Donna, moglie, madre e nonna esemplare, dedita alla famiglia, x me una Super Zia anche se distanti xk io abito in Italia nella sua amata Ischia, mi mancheranno tantissimo, le nostre chiamate piene d amore e di buoni consigli. Ai miei cugini Pietro, Raffaele, e Maria dico di conservare l amore e i sani valori che zia gli ha donato, e di farsi forza per questa grande perdita.Pensavo che con la sua energia sarebbe vissuta ancora un bel po’. Zia adesso canta le canzoni napoletane tra gli Angeli, io ti porterò sempre nelle mie preghiere e nel mio cuore.Mi mancherai tantissimo. Ciao
