Ann, Mike, and family, We are so sorry for the loss of your mother and grandmother. We truly know how difficult it is having lost both of our mothers now as well as our dads. This year has been especially difficult to lose someone you could hardly visit and then to have that person pass is simply heart-breaking. Our deepest sympathy and sincere empathy to all of you. Fondly, T and C

My sincere condolences to Ann and Jim and the rest of the family. I had known Dot for a long time as a teacher and a friend. I looked forward to picking her and Muriel up to go to the retired teachers luncheons. We had many good times and happy memories.It was a coincidence when I found out that my father and Dot’s husband Ken were good friends in the East Providence Fire Department many years ago and her son Jim and his wife Sherry were good friends of mine. She was a very sweet, kind and humorous friend who will be missed.

On behalf of the East Bay Retired Teachers Assn and the Rhode Island Retired Teachers Assn I'd like to extend our sympathy on the death of Dot. She was such a vibrant, funny lady who loved life. She participated in our luncheons and was very lucky winning wine in our raffles. She will be missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing her.
