The statement that she loved her family and friends is so true of Dorothy. From the time we all gathered at our grandparents house in West Warwick and through out all her life, Dorothy always had a smile on her face and a fun loving spirit. Mom and I will miss you Dot thinking of those days. Love, Aunt Sue and cousin Sandra
