Dorothea was such a love, a gentle and kind person who loved her time at the pool. She will be missed. I am sorry that I did not get to give her a final hug. Missing the gang now that I am back in New Orleans,Pool Pal Priscilla sends love to all.

Even thought we can't see her anymore I'm sure she will join us on occasion at the pool. Thanks for your tribute to her. GG BaBa
