"Nighty night" is what Dot always said to me as I took my last walk around the hall and as I was passing her as she worked on the latest jig saw puzzle she was working on. I had such interesting chats with her, learning about her travels, career, friends from all over the world and her family. She was such an interesting lady, having such a career and travels. I miss her -- she was in a class alone. Truly special. So--"Nighty night, Dot--Rest in peace."

"Nightly Night" Dot--She always said that to me when I passed her at the puzzle table on my way to my apartment. I felt she was a good "new" friend here at PK.
So, my friend, "Nighty Night, Dot."
