To the Rogers family
Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I did not know Dottie as much as I would have liked to, we just shared perennials, but when we saw each other on Leona or on the "Garden Tour" we chatted and her smile was always very warming. My thoughts are with you and may you find comfort on the great memories you shared.
Sincerely
Joanne Longton

Twenty eight years ago I moved to Leona Dr. with my family right next door to the Rogers. We became neighbors, then best of friends and later like family. We brought our kids to Nursery School together, skating lessons, dance lessons, and so much more. We took the kids trick-or-treating, and to the pool in the Summer, and on vacation to Myrtle Beach. In the winter, Dottie taught Michelle and Kimberly how to ski. I'd sit in the lodge and watch them all come down the hill. I can still see Dottie in her pretty white and black ski outfit. Oh, how she loved to ski!! Dottie loved Holidays, baking, sewing, gardening and biking outdoors. Her home and her decorations were always immaculate! We loved spending Christmas Eve together and our thing was to always buy each other dishes from our holiday sets. Even though we were a walk away from each other's houses, she'd mail our Christmas card every year. Her cards were so fun as they always rhymed or had a theme, and I couldn't wait to receive them. Her favorite topic was her kids. She would just light up when telling me that Kristin was off to Law School, and every time Steven continued to get promoted at the bank. If we weren't chatting in the yard, or off shopping at a Craft Fair, you could bet we were on the phone. If we weren't on the phone, we were parked in my driveway chatting for an hr. when she was dropping me off. We'd talk for hrs. on end, and we were never at a loss for words. Dottie always had the best advice for me, and she always had an open ear. If I was home alone during the day and we had a severe storm coming, I always knew the phone would be ringing and she would invite me down to her house, as she knew I dislike storms! She would always check in with me if I was sick to see if I needed anything while she was at the grocery store, or would even offer to get something for my Dad or visit him. If my husband new I was on the phone with Dottie, he knew dinner was going to be awhile! I looked forward to hearing the phone ring and seeing it was her everyday like clockwork calling to catch up. Sometimes we'd catch up while we were power walking around the neighborhood. Dottie was so active and always motivated me. One day when checking on the kids when they were little, Dottie motioned for me to come quickly and help her get a dead skunk out of her bushes. She said, I'll get the shovel if you don't mind holding the bag open. Here she was, this pretty petite blonde haired blue eyed neighbor of mine from Long Island, shoveling skunks out of her yard in the Berkshires. Years later, Dottie must have thought I was ignoring her when she was trying to talk to me through the fence right until she realized it was a huge black bear on the other side of the fence. Dottie was the neighbor that I borrowed eggs from if we decided to bake and midway through I realized I was missing an ingredient. She even paid for someone to plow out our driveway during one huge winter storm when we were out-of-town, and she was worried we wouldn't be able to pull into our driveway. I couldn't sew, so it was off to Dottie's if my girls needed help with something, or the perfect Halloween costume to borrow. She was also the perfect reference when my daughters applied for their first jobs. I'm going to miss the big things like picnicking in the Summer, and looking forward to her crab macaroni salad and chicken wings. Spending Christmas Eve together with take-out from Mazzeo's, and planning New Yrs. Eve. Also, calling each other to see what was on our menus and especially what we were doing for dessert. I also loved hearing all of the fun and exciting things she was planning to do in the Berkshires with her family. I also enjoyed watching Dottie and Steve dance together at Steven and Meaghan's Wedding and the sparkle in their eyes as they tore it up on the dance floor!! Dottie loved being a MOM so much and raised her children with so much love and support. I always knew I never had to worry if my kids were with her or if it was her turn to bring them or pick them up from School. I will think of her every time I hear a tea kettle go off, as she loved her cup of tea! I'll miss our daily power walks in the Summer as we were both off from school, and then later off to our exercise classes at the Gym. When I think back on my life, Dottie was always there for me and my family for everything!! We are going to miss her very much!! I'm going to miss my best friend!! She'll be with us in our hearts, thoughts, and memories forever always!!!! We love you Dottie!!! Dianne, Mike, Michelle, Kym and Garrett
