Dorothy is going to be missed I have been taking care of here and we loved each other. There was something about her personalty and she was so appreciative for the little things you would do for her.
It is not going to be the same not having her here to put her jewelry on something she loved so much. She was a beautiful women inside and out.And when she loved you she loved you. My heart and prayers to the family to heal each and every day and to know she was loved by so many. I will miss you Dorothy love you much and I know you are resting peacefully now.
