Summer days enjoying the beaches of Newport with her Beloved Mother, Sophie Nemtzow, her sister Beatrice, and many young nieces and nephews, are among my most cherished memories of Aunt Dottie. Although limited to her own two hands, she would typically take Marcia, Susan and me into those turbulent waves . One or two unpredictably huge waves caused three little girls to tumble in the swirling, churning surf. Holding our breath, Aunt Dottie would, rather calmly but firmly grab onto our wet, silken hair. And up for a, big breath, we would emerge! To this day, I do not know how she managed to never loss one of us. It is both her outer and inner strength, compassion for others, that coursed through her veins. Perhaps,along with the love, trust and respect of decades of two interceding lives, I will have wonderful memories to never forget this modest, yet remarkable woman. Certainly they will last my lifetime.
