    Diane and family,
    So sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. It’s hard to lose them when you have had them for so long. I will always remember her coming to visit your Dad every day and the video from Alex Trebek.

    Condolences to the family on the loss of your Mom. Dorothy and I had many chats together and grew close over the years. She always said her sense of humour kept her going. She was young at heart and enjoyed life. We often reminisced about her and Art and how she missed dancing with him. Well I hope you’re dancing now Dorothy you will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Cathy Wilson
