I met Dorothy in 1982 when we were cast as mother and daughter in the Circuit Playhouse production of The Women. She had a scene with the child playing my daughter just before I entered. I would stand off stage listening to that scene. So good. She was a wonderful actress. We became friends during that play. I left Memphis in 1984 but remember her performance in Cabaret at POTS opposite Alan Mullikin. After returning to Memphis in 2000, we renewed our friendship. I saw her in Marriage to an Older Woman for which she a regional competition best actress award. Mornings at Seven, Killing Louise and she played my mother again in New Moon Theatre's production of Footfalls. And we saw many productions together. Dear friend, always. I will miss her very much.
