    Lynn and Scott, Very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, she was such a sweet kind lady, I remember when it was girls movie night at your house, your mom would make the best homemade pizzas I remember one time the family dog (nutmeg) was found on the dining table enjoying her share of a pizza. My Deepest Condolences.

    I’ve known Dottie since the early 80’s when we both worked at the Watkins Museum of History. She got me into Green Thumb Garden Club. For the last six years I have lived behind her in a townhome at Presbyterian Manor. She will be missed!
