Condolence & Memory Journal

We are so sorry to hear of Dottie's passing! My heart just breaks at this news. We live across from Dottie in Abington, and my boys (ages 4 and 2) loved to visit her. She was a kind neighbor and adored my boys, always commenting fondly about how they reminded her of when her children were little. She will be missed dearly by all of us. Her family is in our thoughts and prayers. God bless.

John, Daniel and David, Peace.
I knew your mom through my own, Gen Coughlin. Aside from my mom your's was my second favorite "cafeteria lady". Always cheerful (aren't all moms always, NOT) but Dot was always pleasant Gen passed away herself a few years back. I'm quite sure she'd want me to express her condolences. May you find some peace and comfort in the days and times ahead knowing she's in the best place, the loving arms of Christ. God bless Her and all of you and yours.
