  1. So sorry to read about Dottie\’s passing. When I came to Yale in 1983 Dottie was a HPW in Calhoun College. I admired her knowledge, guidance and leadership. Calhoun and Yale was a better place when she was there. I will miss her.

  2. VonBritton family,

    We pass along our condolences and love in the passing of Thia. May the love of God comfort and sustain you. May all your good memories see you through your time of bereavement. Love to you all,

    Diane and Scotty
