Al & Scotty, we were so sorry to learn of Dottie's passing. It doesn't seem that long ago that we worked together at Sully Station Swim Team events where we passed the time having pleasant conversations while the children competed. Dottie will be missed in our neighborhood.

With Deepest Sympathy,

Mary, Kevin, Brendan & Catherine English
