  2. Over the last 5 years I have visited Dorothy at Extendicare on a fairly regular basis. She was an amazing lady, many was the time that I came away from the visit feeling more cheered by the visit than when I went in! She was SO appreciative of my coming,in November she told me that I was “a star in her sky”! How could I not feel wonderful? Her life will always be an inspiration to me, she was a fine example of how to age gracefully!
