I loved Dort so much and will miss her immensely. We used to talk on the phone for hours at a time, and I believe we solved most of the world's problems. Her friendship was something I greatly valued.

So sorry to hear about Dort. I let Scott know and he talked about meeting you and Dort at Cedar Shore last summer and meeting her kids.

What a perfect photo to represent Dort. In that picture, I can hear her laughing through that warm smile of hers, of course after telling one of her zinger stories, all while holding a coffee cup. Dort was the best storyteller, a loyal friend to many and so quick to smile. She loved her family so much. I hope for comfort, memories of good times and lots of love to the family. My hearts breaks with you all.
