  1. Dagmar, the most fun-loving, best dancing friend I ever knew. But even more important, a great nurse-practitioner whose skills in the ER at the Hospital, and in the Vineyard Medical Clinic were unsurpassed. Calm, cool, collected, and always professional, grounded in common sense and reality … a terrible disease that she had to suffer. RIP, Dag.

  2. As the 15-year Director of the Visiting Nurse Service (VNS), I became quite familiar with Ms. Dockery’s name and reputation at the VNA. She was a presence in the home health agency industry. I am sure she will be missed.
