    I am a Volunteer for Old Colony Hospice and visited Dorothy a few times. My thoughts are with her family and friends during this sad time. I made her laugh a few times and am sorry I didn't have the chance to make her laugh a few more times. Fond memories of her will live on in those who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace.
