I am so sorry to hear about Mildreds passing! I knew her as Dolly, for 16 years me and my family lived next door to her. She was a wonderful person! Always very kind and helpful to us. I still remember the day when she played kickball with us in our back alley with me and my sisters! She really was one of a kind, and I will never forget her! God Bless!!!!

So sorry to hear of "Dolly's" passing. My fondest childhood memories were being neighbors of the Granito/Mumfreda families and working in the store. She was always a very strong woman I admired and always remembered. God bless you and the family.
