for Dorothy Fitch

Photo taken Nov. 19, 2009, as members gather about Dorothy, seated in her wheelchair, suffering from A.L.S. Dorothy was the coordinator of Word and Life from 1994 to 1998. Alice's blessing is followed by a sung one, led by Christine Milne and Gail Campanella, for all who have guided Word and Life through its 31 years.
