Dort was a wonderful woman with great courage. Even though we had only started to get a chance to know each other, I just loved her. I am reminded of the line from The Wizard of Oz: A heart is measured not by how much we love, but by how much we are loved by others. I will miss you, Dort, and I will never forget you.
