To Tony, Carol and the whole Gerace family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Dolly's smile was always so pleasing to see when visiting her with Tony on his daily trips to his mom's house when I was in Tampa. You knew you were welcomed.

Whoever gave Elvera the Nickname of Dolly, knew her well. She was a Doll!! She had such a sweet personality! She made you feel good about yourself with her big genuine smile. When you spoke to her, you had her undivided
attention! We loved going to Broomall for the BBQs, Aunt Dolly worked hard to host. The fun, filled with memories of my cousins are priceless! We were all so in awe of her being a Nurse! She truly was an Angel of Mercy. She was an exceptional wife and Mother! Anyone can see the love in her eyes for her family! I will always picture my Aunt Dolly and Uncle Tony dancing on clouds in heaven. Rest in peace and love for a life well done! ❤
