I had the honor and privilege of meeting and working closely with Dottie when she served on the Hillsborough County Commission. At the time, I represented the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. You always knew where Dottie stood on an issue and that made a difficult job a little easier.

My prayers are with her family, losing someone who is so loved is such a devastating time to get through. I've known her and the family for over 15 years and she was a very loving and thoughtful person but her memory will go on with all the great work she has done for children. May you rest in God's arms in loving peace.

Dottie was the voice for so many that couldn't speak for themselves. She was truly and awe inspiring woman who moved mountains for the causes near and dear to her heart. May her work continue through the seeds she has sewn and nurtured so tenderly. May God bless her soul and comfort her family in this difficult time.
