Dorothy was such a nice person, always warm and with a kind smile. Art and Dorothy were friends of my parents and enjoyed many happy times. Bless both of the Andersons.

I don't cry for you leaving us, I smile knowing you are back with Art. I think of how much a part of my early childhood your were....all those holidays spent with you.... I think of "scallop corn" which is the one tradition I get to pass from you to my kids. I will miss you, but know that you and Art will continue to watch us from above. I love you.
