    I am so sorry to see this. Dorothy was always so kind and treated the residents in nursing facilities like her family. It doesn’t seem that long ago that I ran into her and we had a nice talk. Prayers of comfort for her family.

    Our hearts are very heavy at Heart to Heart Hospice. We loved Dorothy and she loved volunteering and spending time with her patients. She loved on them and was always doing thoughtful things for them. Thursday morning she had been to the nursing home and took one of her assigned patients donuts from Donut Bank and balloons for her birthday. Her big infectious laughter still rings in my ears. We will miss her dearly and our hearts ache for all of her family. We will be praying for peace and comfort for all of you.
