God bless you all. I remember many enjoyable times with Dotty when our kids were small.

Remembering Dottie.... we would sit with Troy and Dottie during the Issac Walton League monthly dinners and business meetings. Always lively conversation and she would share the title of a good book or a description of having a fun summer in Maine. Was missing them over the last years and hoped they had missed Covid. Dottie enjoyed her teaching at Montgomery Community College and her students and I shared my personal teaching tales with her. One evening we were entertained with a description of their crossing of the continent on the Trans Canada Railway.... what a trip! Later we talked of the huge sorting and giving away of things from their Maryland home as they prepared for a move to Florida. Since I grew up in Florida I was eager to hear about their new home and neighborhood when they came back to Maryland for a visit. I remember Dottie with her little oxygen tank and I so admired her strength of spirit to carry on with life and not let a set back keep her from enjoying all she could. May God Bless her and her family.

I have such warm memories of Dotty. She always brought a smile to me when she would come into St. John's and sit a couple of rows ahead of us in the transept. We occasionally would have a chance to catch up on the lives of our children. She was so proud of you two and spoke so lovingly of you.
I also think about our days together in Boy Scouts with such wonderful memories. I am picturing her now in her Scout Leader uniform. We had such fun times.
I will remember her always as such a warm, gracious, and exceptional person.

Alex, I'm so sorry about your mom, and I'm thinking of you so much right now. You've been the best friend ever, and I wish I could be there to support you now. Love you, man.

Mrs. Agnew, I only had the opportunity to meet you once, at Alex's graduation party. But I remember the kindness you shared to all of his friends. You raised a wonderful young man - Alex awes me with his kindness, humor, and generosity every day, and we have remained close throughout the years, despite distance. You will be missed, and my thoughts are with your family during this incredibly hard time. LOVE YOU, ALEX.
