“Scottish Psalter”

The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want;He makes me down to lie in pastures green,He leadeth me the quiet waters by.My soul He doth restore again;and me to walk doth make
within the paths of rightouness
E’en for His own name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,yet will I feel no ill for Thou art with me,and Thy rod and staff me comfort still.
My table Thou hast furnished in presence of my foes; my head Thou hast with oil anoint,and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life shall surely follow me. And in God’s house for evermore my dwelling place shall be.

Susan, Gary, Brian, David, Diantha and all of Dot's family: I am so sorry to learn of Dot's passing. I know she has not been well for some time and my heart goes out to all of you in this very sorrowful time. I shall always remember the fun times we had in earlier years at the Unity Club dances and affairs, the vacation a bunch of us took one summer at Cape Cod, and in most recent years, a group of us widows, The Gang as we called ouselves, periodically getting together for lunch to renew old times. My deepest condolences to all of you. May fond memories of Dot forever live in your hearts and sustain you during this very difficult time.

Our sympathies go out to you all. Dot was a very smart lady, who gave a Chairman of the Trustees alot of help and was always appreciated. Growing up across the Street from Dot always had alot of memories from Prospect St. and her handsome brother. God bless you all, your in our prayers. Linda Jo and Mel Gershowitz
