My deepest sympathy to Dorthy's family. I am very sorry to read of her passing. I enjoyed visiting with Dorthy when we worked Kiawanis together for years and stopping by her home to catch up on what was going on. I have missed her since her move to Watertown. May God bless the memory of Dorthy. Jerry
