On Saturday, we lost one of our close friends and Dorchester resident-Christopher Hannon (above right with his fiance David Moser).

Chris was a longtime member of DotOUT and loving friend. His smiling face was always a bonus at our local events. When we built our float in Cedar Grove next to his place, he always passed by to lend some helpful tips.

For details about his memorial this Thursday evening, and funeral on Friday in Dorchester, see http://www.oconnorandson.com/obits/obituary.php?id=525167

Chris’ love of dogs begets requested donations to Angell Animal Medical Center, 350 So. Huntington Ave., Boston, MA 02130, www.mspca.org.

When we lose one of our own, it’s important that we stand together. Let your friends and loved ones know you’re thinking about them.

With love and sympathy to Chris’ family,

DotOUT Steering Committee & Friends
