Dottie was the most gracious and loving person I have had the privilege to know. Her love for humankind was real for those of us who knew and loved her. While her physical presence is dearly missed, her love she shared is and always will be with us. That love helps us daily to overcome not having Dottie to share. Dottie would always sign her letters and cards with this thought - "Be Happy." That's truly how Dottie wanted us to be in life. We are happy today because we know Dottie is at peace. Also,-we are happy because of what Dottie left for us to always share - HER LOVE. Husband, Abe; and family, Mel, Diana, AI, Beverly and Amanda. IN MEMORIAM Harvey B.
