    Dorothy and I were at Allegro together and then we moved to Coral Oaks together there was a group of 4 of us very close friends. We lost one of them a little while ago and now we have lost Dorothy. She will be greatly missed by many but the 2 of our group left will really miss her. She was a wonderful friend!
