Very sorry to hear that Dorothy has passed away. We worked together for many years and became friends and enjoyed meals out together. She was a lovely lady and we had lots of laughs together with our friend Eve and other colleagues. We unfortunately haven’t been allowed to visit recently but did have a chat on the phone at White Ash. and she seemed to be quite happy. . She will be sadly missed.
