  1. May you feel comfort in the beautiful memories of you Mother and grandma. Know you are in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. (Kara and Danielle’s mom).

  2. Dorothy spread happiness to everyone she ever met. She always had a smile to share, kindness in her words, and a twinkle in her eye when she laughed with you. Her family loved and adored her as they shared many great times together with all of them. She will be missed by all and we will keep her in our memory and hearts forever.
