I'm very sorry to hear the news of the passing of Mrs. Aldridge. I always enjoyed my visits with her and will miss them in the future. She was always a delightful lady, with a beautiful smile. My condolences to the family.

I was sorry to learn of the passing of your mom, grandmother and great grandmother, Dotty. Whenever she visited me in the church office she would speak so proudly of her family. I enjoyed working with her as the coordinator of the Caring Ministry. She was a lovely, lovely woman and will be missed.

We are so sorry for your loss. She was like a mother to me and was always there for my mom Rose Duffy. Take comfort knowing that you now have a guardian angel watching over you. She will be greatly missed.

Dotty was a wise, gracious and lovely lady. We felt as if she were "Another mother". We loved her very much and she truly blessed and enriched our lives. Lois and Roy (Don) Kohan
