Connie, Dan and Tim,
I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She was a true lady filled with grace, dignity, and loyalty. She was a major positive influence in my life. I owe so much to her. Dotty was love and respected by all who had the privilege to know her.
I often thought of her and each time it brought a smile to my face. Thank you for sharing your mother.

Hi, I worked at South St. Marys Street Elementary School in the special Ed department. I was a new young teacher. Your mom was so kind to me. Any chance I would get, I would stop in the office for a chat with her. I will never forget her kindness even though I moved after teaching there for 2 years and I haven’t seen her since. May she Rest In Peace. Mary Aiello
