Dear Dave, Bill, Linda and family,

I am are so very sorry to hear of Dotty’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and helped people her entire life. I got to know her when we served together on the Bolton Senior Commission. Through her contributions on that Commission she help convince the town to build its first Senior Center.
I will always remember her fondly and send my condolences to you and your family.

Sincerely, Daniel Buckson and family. Bolton, CT
