Dear Editor,

Thanks to Whitman Browne for his touching remembrance of Dorothy Elskoe in his May 1, letter to the editor.

Among her many other charitable contributions was being a United Way volunteer as a board member, campaign worker and cultural event coordinator — all performed with diligence and love. An elegant and kind lady, so much treasured.
