I am so sorry to hear about Dorothy.  She was such a sweet and godly woman.  She was always thinking of others before herself.  She always made you feel welcome in her home.
These are just a few of the qualities I saw in her.  She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed.
There is no doubt she is with her Savior and seeing others that went on before her.
I look forward to seeing her again one day soon.
Much love to all of you.  I am here for you if you need anything.

Love ,
Cheryl Mann
