Dorothy Ann "Dotty" Plotkin
Cousin Burt, Please accept our sincerest sympathy on the loss of your wife. She was such a joy. I'm sorry I only was able to contact her via phone. Hugs to you and all the family. Susie Alexander-Roach
We are sorry for your loss. Dotty, was such a great person, She will live on in our memories forever.
I miss Dotty. I.m sorry for all you others who miss her as much or more than I do. I miss the hours of talking when she called "for just a minute". where we told each other things never said to others, we fixed the world's problems and sometimes not so gently called attention to each other's flaws. (She much more subtlly than I).
She helped me keep close to Jehovah. For that I will be eternally grateful.
Dotty and I were about 13 years old when we met. She was short, I was tall, and we were called Mutt and Jeff. Where you would find one you would most likely find the other; sometimes it seemed like I was at her house more often than my own. We had so much fun together; our personalities clicked perfectly. We would help each other with chores so we would get done faster. We walked and talked, listened to records while we lay on the floor talking about the things in life that were important to us at the time. We were best of friends. After she was transferred to King High School, we lost track of one another.
I thought of her so many times through the years, wondered how she was. I talked about her with my son, who asked why I didn't contact her. I said it had been 50 years; perhaps she did not remember me with the fondness that I remembered her. During our conversation, he had asked me her last name and if she had any brothers. With this information, he called Gordy and gave him my phone number to give to Dotty, in case she might want to call me.
This is how we reconnected a few years back. I never saw her again, but we wrote emails and talked on the phone. After Nana called me to tell me Dotty had passed, I wrote to Butch (who now lives in Germany) and thanked him for making that initial phone call that brought Dotty and I together again. God gave us those last years to once more share our friendship, and I am so very, very grateful.
She helped me through hard times when I lost loved ones, talked with me and sent me her very beautiful cards. We shared and we cared.
She was my friend; I loved her.
Dear Burt and Perry
We are so sorry for your loss. We are keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
Never was someone as witty and funny as Dotty. She will be missed by many.
