    Though bedridden in her later years, “Aunt Dot” was always cheerful and friendly. She will be missed.

    I am so glad that Shannon and I were able to go see Aunt Dot the day after Christmas. Although she was sleeping, we had a nice conversation with Chaplain Correale. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to others. She truly will be missed but we have many fond memories to remember her by. Sleep well Aunt Dottie!

    Love, Light and Peace,
    Sue & Shannon xx

    My twin sister and myself lived on the corner of Shippan Ave. and Fairview Ave. in Stamford, CT for over 40 years and went to Rogers School. We had Miss Kramer for a teacher and also talked with her in the neighborhood many times as she walked by our house on the corner from the bus stop. She always remembered us when she saw us and we the same. Fairview Ave. was a great neighborhood to grown up in. Grace still lives over near the Yacht Club and had one son who also attended Rogers School. It was a great place to grow up in.

    Miss Kramer was a fond memory. I live up here in Burlington, VT now but often visit my sister and we ride by our house and Brightside Drive where Miss Kramer lived. Our mother lived to 91 yrs old and your Aunt “was a real trooper”. God bless you all.
