To the Lane family-
Please accept our condolences on the loss of your mother, Dorothea.
Your mother was a sweet person I was always happy to see and speak with.;She was always interested in others and had much kindness. It would be a mistake to not make her acquaintance and respect her role as the wife of the Northbridge High School Principal, which no doubt was a stressful job for your Dad. I just always felt your Mom gave him a lot of strength and balance, not to mention she was the mother of three growing boys - she sure had her work cut out for her! She seemed to handle it all with grace while still working and having her own interests.
Sincerely, Jeannie and Don Katz
