We met Dot at the Tuesday cribbage group, held at the Community Center. What a pleasure it was to to play the game with her. She was so sharp & shared her wonderful sense of humor. When dealt a "nineteen" hand, she would exclaim," I got what Paddy shot at, nothing!" We miss you Dot. With special thoughts & prayers.
