May you all find comfort and peace from Dorothy’s many many friends. She was a great neighbor to all of us in the Monroe/Fairfield area. We loved the impromptu gathers on her porch and her fabulous cooking. God Bless the Scarnati’s!!

Dorothy was a great lady. Always such a hard worker. Coincidentally, I just happened to take a drive down Memory Lane yesterday in the old Tool's Chapel neighborhood yesterday. Lots of good memories there.
