Not sure what to say?

Dear Marymargaret, I am so sorry to hear of Dottie's passing. She was an amazing and unforgettable presence. I know that your family was important to my father Joe Mayhew as well. He always was delighted to see his young cousin at FHS occasions. I am sorry not to hear of her death at the time but I live out of state. I just read Sue's column about her favorite teacher and had to write. I know she is happy still. Kathleen Mayhew McCormack

Miss McCann was such a wonderful and inspirational teacher. . I can still hear her voice as she entered the classroom with a booming "Bonjour!". Her passion and zest for life was infectious.

I have am ache in my heart today as I remember this wonderful women who was my colleague and friend. My heart is bleeding with sadness as I write this, but I know (due to her direct line to God) that she is happy with all of her family especially her mother and father. I am sure they were all there with open arm.

Dear Mingie,
I am so sorry to hear of Dottie's passing. You and she were so close and always brought fun and laughter wherever you went together. Dottie's voice and comedic timing were an entertainer's dream. She brought joy to many "audiences". Applause, applause for a wonderful caring person who shared her talent, endless energy and her heart with any and all she met along the way. I pray your abundant memories of her extraordinary life will help you get past the lonliness....

Margaretmary, I'm so sorry about the loss of your sister. I know how much you meant to one another.

Bruce and I had the pleasure of knowing this beautiful women. She had a way of telling a story that was unique and funny, and she always had that twinkle in her eye. She will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting her and being apart of she and Margaretmarys loving circle of friends. The memories of her voice and laughter will remain with us always.
