Gerry and Tammy,
I am so sorry to read of Dottie and Con's passing. Dottie was a savior when she came to work for me. I called her my second mother as she was so supportive of me as a working mom with young kids. We had so many laughs together. Our only contact over the past few years was an occasional lunch and the exchange of Christmas cards. She was a wonderful person and loved you and your children so much. I am heartbroken.

Knew Dottie when we worked Together at Flanagan Insurance Agency We had many laughs and good times. She loved being stylish and she always looked like a million. She had a big heart and loved Con and her children & grandchildren. loved having them stay at her house on weekends. Her heart was just too big and filled. With love of family. It just wore out Miss you Dottie.,

Yesterday I decided to find the final resting place of Con Madigan. I was saddened to view the site for two good reasons.

On my visits to Con, Dottie always greeted me with a warm hug, a kiss and friendly words.

I was surprised to hear of her illness and of her passing last fall - I didn't have a clue.

My condolences to the family.
