  1. Dot and Lee were our neighbors on Hop Brook Road in Bethany for many years. We could not have hoped for better! They were always helpful as we started our new family in our very little house. These were wonderful people.
    We send our love and deepest sympathy to the family,

  2. We send our condolences to Aunt Dot’s family and friends. We were delighted to reconnect with her and Uncle Lee five years ago at a memorial service for my Dad and her brother George. They were always so kind to us as kids. With fond memories, Paula (Lewis) and Jody Day
