Dorothy and I lived very close on Emmet St when we were young. The last time I saw her was around 1962 when she came Chicopee for a visit and came to visit my family.
She was 2 years older than me so she was my idol for some time.
She taught me many things about life. Girl things. She taught me to dance in her driveway.
We were going to a wedding I was about 9 she was 11 she thought I should know how to waltz. I am so happy she had a wonderful life. We did not stay in...

I am so saddened to learn of Dorothy's passing. Sending all of you my love and deepest sympathy, and holding you close in my thoughts during this painful time.

So sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. She was a very special lady who brightened every room she entered, reflected warmth, caring and grace wherever she went and with everyone she interacted. May she rest in peace.

I am so saddened to learn of lovely Dorothy's death. She had such a natural elegance, quick and subtle wit and caring, loving nature. I remember well the summer month we spent in condos at Silverado the summer of 1991. What fun we had! More than anything, I remember the FIERCE love she had for her family. My deepest sympathy to you, Brad and Alison. I am deeply sorry...
