    Dorothy and I were the best of friends! The age difference made us laugh from time to time, but we loved the same music and humor! When I went to visit her on Monday prior to her passing, I told her I was losing my partner in crime. Just a joke between the two of us! I’m going to miss not having our steak and shrimp at least once a month! I’m going to miss her so much! I love you and will see you again!!

    dorothy was such a fun person to be around. she often shared about her grandchildren and people she cared about. there is no doubt she had a certain way of putting things. you would have to laugh. i always called her dar ath ee , like the lion would say on the Wizard of Oz. she would just smile. God Bless you Dorothy and the your family.
