I just loved Mrs. J and am thankful for all the wonderful times I had with her and Mr. J. I first met Mr. and Mrs. J when I traveled to Milford for their son Joe's marriage to his beloved Patty. Joe is my law school classmate and my brother from a different mother. The Jordano's hosted me in their home that weekend. From then on when I visited Milford it was to see Mrs. J, Mr. J and Joe, in that order.

While truly saddened by her loss, she would probably be the first to say, "now Mike, don't be sad about my death, I have had a wonderful life, now tell me, what's going on with your family?" She would also ask me to look after Mr. J and Joe.

As we celebrate Dorothy's life we must truly marvel at God's handiwork in bringing together this calm, quiet soul with these, shall we say, not calm or quiet men. (Mr. J, Joe, and I am guessing his other brothers). Our Pinochle games were the stuff of legend. Myself, Mr. J and Joe would be loud, boastful, (I must add that Mr. J would forever be chasing Pinochle), and unsportsmanlike. Not Dorothy, she would be calm, helpful, and the epitome of decorum. Something else she would do, is WIN. Whatever team she was on would almost always Win! She was so modest even though she was a far superior card player to Mr. J, Joe and I dare say myself. Cards were often followed by a delicious meal cooked by Mr. & Mrs. J. They were really cute together in the kitchen.

Thank you so much for sharing your wife and mother with me. Your hearts will ache for a good while yet, but your memories will warm your heart and put a smile on your face for the rest of your life.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our brotherinlaw Joe and his family. Dorothy was an amazing lady. We loved her so much,. When we moved to Milford and our daughter was younger she offered to pick her up at school, watch her and even be an emergency contact if we needed her. I will also remember how she would come with Mom Callahan to the Senior Center where I work to check out trips and activities. She was such a thoughtful and loving person. She will be missed by us all! God Bless to all!
Love The Callahans (Tom, Kim & Erin Marie)
