What a great privilege it has been to have known Aunt Dorothy all of my life. I remember and enjoyed all of the Holidays and family get togethers. Wanetta is not able to be there, but she said that "it was a blessing". Like always, the Big sister goes on before, preparing the way for little sister to follow.

I am so sad to hear of Dorothy's passing. But is has been a joy to watch the obvious love between Dorothy and her husband, David. I remember when I first met them and my heart was so touched by the way David looked at Dorothy, as if they were still teenagers falling in love. It was a beautiful thing to witness the kind of love many people search for their whole lives. RIP Dorothy and bless you David for all your love and devotion to Dorothy when she was in need. My heart goes out to David and all the family.
