    I am so sad to hear that my aunt Dorothy Alice is gone but she is with her "SISTER". She did say that when Sheila died she was soon to go. I will miss her but we will have good memories and lots of good stories to tell. Love you Aunt Dottie.

    I have many fond memories of my Aunt Dottie. Some of my favorites were from when she and Aunt Sheila would come to visit us in Toms River. We would shop and eat and drink and Laugh... oh how we would laugh! On Sunday we would all go to church together. I am especially thankful for Aunt Dottie's prayers for me when I had cancer. She will always be in my heart ~ God Bless you Aunt Dottie <3 Love your niece, Maura

    I will always remember Aunt Dottie for her warmth and beauty. She was so easy to talk to and always friendly and supportive. I am comforted to know that she is at peace and with her brothers and sisters and all the O'Sullivan's and Big Fella Mahoney, I am sure greeted her with a big belly laugh and warm hug. She will be dearly missed <3

    I will miss my wonderful visit to Dottie. After praying together and receiving the Eucharist we would talk about all of our memories of growing up in New York and New Jersey. I particularly enjoyed her sharing her days as a model for Alexanders. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
