Dorothy was a special lady. I served as her pastor for many years and we loved her very much. Though I was unable to go see her at Heritage House due to my health, my wife did. She will be missed. May God give you comfort.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and loved ones.

I had the pleasure to meet Aunt Dot about 3 years ago for my first and only time, with my wife, Della. She enjoyed the visit from family and recalling some of her fond memories and sharing stories. It was a pleasure to meet her and be there to hear her stories.

Dot was always so kind to me when I saw her while visiting my very best friend Sherry.
She would always tell us as we were leaving to enjoy each other and to stay out of trouble.
She loved her family and grandchildren as well as her great grands. She will be missed.
