This is just a short note of thanks to those who expressed sympathy concerning Dorothy's passing.
There were so many of you who cared. Your expressions of sympathy, and your prayers, were (are) much appreciated.
From a spiritual viewpoint, I have no doubt concerning Dorothy's final disposition. I like to think of her sharing the wonder of Easter morning in the company of He who promised her eternal life.
Be that as it may - and it is - addenda you may find useful or interesting:
First, Dorothy's funeral mass will be held at St. Mary’s church in Franklin on Monday morning at 10:00 AM. The funeral director informs us that Dorothy had planned the readings and picked out the music herself. I'm glad to hear that.
Obituary, from Charles F. Oteri & Son.
Next, here's a very nice farewell from my and Dorothy's friend, Jackie.
And now, a video I found on-line. Most of you only know what Dorothy looked like from my horrible photography. This video shows her in her 'natural habitat', some three years ago, feeding the cats she so dearly loved. I am very grateful to the person who shot this. I never expected to find actual footage of her walking around, so this was a very blessed surprise.

The cat shelter so helpful in caring for Dorothy's cats was Purr-Fect Cat Shelter. I'll be making a donation in her memory.
Finally, a reporter from Dorothy's local paper spoke to me on Thursday, concerning a story they wished to run on either Saturday or Monday. I don't have details concerning that yet - when exactly it will appear, for instance - but you could check The Milford Daily News website. By the time you read this, it may be up.
Again, thanks for the love.
Soon, with more better stuff.
