A wonderful soul and a woman who I will always associate with love and most of all laughter. A great friend and soul sister to my mom who had no siblings, Roddy was truly her brother so she was lucky enough to inherit Dots. Both my parents got ill at the same time so Dottsie would always tell us she was going broke with how many candles she would have to light. Never failed to make us laugh. The world has lost a shining light. I will miss our phone conversations and your laugh. Thank you for being such a great friend to both my parents. Love you Dots.

Sorry to hear Dorothy's name mentioned at the 7PM Mass tonight at Saint Christopher's, but did smile as I fondly remember her, having spent many happy occasions video-taping events for her family. Dorothy was always the coolest, happiest & most friendly person in the room, who had such a nice aura about her. I met many people in my 30 plus years in the business, and I will always Dorothy - the matriarch of a lovely family....John "Red Baran" Baranello
