Rich, Robin Wendy and family,
I am so very very sorry about Dottie’s passing. It was a big shock as it was for all of you. I will remember Dottie always as she was a great co-worker for 28 years and friend. There was never a dull moment when she was around. I know the love she had for her family. She had a big heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you continue life without her. God is with you all and will give you the comfort, peace, strength and understanding as you go on. I love you all. God bless you all.
