My remembrance of Dorothy was our sophomore summer at MC.  We never dated;  it was what they called in "those' days a platonic relationship. I didn't have any "wheels" to get around Marin from Mill Valley, and she (if I remember correctly) was baby-sitting.  So we talked almost every day to pass the time.  It has been a great memory!

These past eulogys should remind us all that we better get out there and enjoy our famlies and our life.
