I just found out about Dorita's passing. I'm very sorry. She would come to NY once a week to join me and others to do field training. I will miss her and our emailing. God Bless this wonderful lady.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Dorita. I am a member of the Port Chester Obedience Club and loved watching Dorita show her beloved Goldens. She taught me many terrific things and I'll always remember her for that.

Dear Randall, Bill, Dorcas & Family-

My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you endure the tragic loss of Sweet Dorita. I pray that your most treasured memories bring you comfort now and may God bless you with strength and peace.

I will forever cherish my many special memories of "My Fairy Godmother." She had a heart of gold -always kind, thoughtful, generous and warm. She will remain forever beautiful in our memories. While her soul is at peace in Heaven, our hearts are now her home. God bless you always. Until we meet again...

With much love and sympathy,
