To Bill, Tom, David, and Andy and your families.  I got to know Dorothy while working will Bill at DeWalt Div. of Black& Decker in the early 1980’s in the Purchasing Department. You all have lost a great wife and mother and I want to send my condolences to you because of the great wife and mother she was.  My favorite memory of Dorothy was when she and Bill made Sand Tarts every Christmas season – they were the best I ever had in my 65 years of life! I ask the folllowing favor of you boys – where can I locate your father?  The last time I was with him was over 10 years ago when I took him to a Veterans Day program in Millersville.  He still had that great humor which often had me falling off my office chair.  Please let me know.  Again, my regards to you at this sad time.

I saw the news concerning Dorthy’s passing and want to extend to you my deepest sympathy.  It has been a while since we have seen each other.  I do recall those times when we traveled together to Lebanon for support group or at BVA events locally and at VAMCs here or Philadelphia.  It was always a good time with both of you.  Our prayers are with you and your family.

So sorry to hear about the death of your mother. Dotty was the nicest person. I’ll always remember how thrilled she was to find out she was pregnant with all of you you were wanted and loved. Former Roseville Road neighbor. Judy Frantz Sloden.
