Tom, Patty, Keith and Timmy,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I will always remember my partner in crime, and also the fun times we shared at the Two Door and the Horseneck Tavern. RIP Dot.

I was deeply saddened by the news of Dottie's passing. I have so many fond memories. I first met Dottie at our weekly Ceramic classes. Me, mom and Mary Tatano use to go to Bingo every month at St. Clements's Parish. I will never forget the trip to NYC. A bunch of us gals decided to take the train and go sightseeing. We walked and walked but never noticed how far we went as we all chatted the whole time. Years later we always laughed about our outing to the Big Apple. Dottie was a super lady and will truly be missed. My Sympathy to the Waurishuk family during this difficult time.
My heartfelt condolences.
