Miss Lang was my English teacher in Bay Shore Middle School in the early 1970's. She was an excellent teacher. Strict. I learned a lot from her. She was also very classy. Always had perfect hair and make-up, and stylish clothes. Thanks Miss Lang. You were a great English teacher.

I am so saddened to learn of the death of Dolores. I have sweet memories of sitting together at the Cavalry Club pool watching our children play. Your wife/Mom was special.
