Condolences

Dottie was a wonderful person to whom I always enjoyed talking. We were lucky to have her in our great big Barlow family. My condolences to Tom, Nancy and the rest of her family.

Our deepest sympathy. I will miss seeing her every week. She was a sweet lady. Susan and Ted Vitaro, Roffler Family Hair Center

Dorothy was a very warm and pleasant neighbor. I shall miss her smile and warm greeting as we met on the way to the mailbox. I'm sure the "sewing ladies" at the hospital will miss her also, as she was a real contributor to the hospital's needs with that group. We will miss you Dorothy.
