Dear Family of Dorothy, being next door neighbors to Dorothy during our teen years was a gift to know her gentle, obedient spirit. She has been in my thoughts lately, and now I know why. I, like you, hope to see her again. Love,
We are so sorry to hear about Dorothy's passing. We love her very much and will definitely miss her. She was always so kind and loving towards me and my children. We're sending love and prayers your way at this difficult time.
