I just received this update from Jonathan Butters:
My family and I sincerely appreciate all the condolences and kind words expressed by you and her fans. A memorial service will be held for her on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at The Community Church of New York, 40 East 35th Street in Manhattan. Any readers of the Mrs. Pollifax Fan Blog who happen to be in the area are welcome to attend. Jonathan Butters”
f you reside in the area we hope you can attend. And we hope you will share the experience with the rest of her fans who are not able. I will really miss all the new stories that Dorothy Gilman Butters could have shared with us and I wish I could come up with an appropriate saying that would ease the pain of her children and grandchildren. I, for one, will pause in whatever I am doing at that time and offer a moment of silence in honor of this great writer, mother and artist.
