Mrs. Henderson, was my choir director at East Limestone High School. She was always the sweetest and kindest person. Many years later if I saw her somewhere she would always hug my neck and ask me how I was doing.

I remember when Dorothy's father came to Isoms Chapel as our pastor. I thought Dorothy was such a beautiful young lady & then later on my cousin Billy married her. Dorothy has always been such a sweet and caring lady. No one would ever have to wonder about her faith. She lived and walked here on earth as the beautiful christian she was. So lucky to have her as my cousin. I remember what good care she gave my Aunt Tillie (her mother-in-law) when she became ill. She always remembered everyone in the family and all their children. I know heaven has truly acquired another wonderful angel. Dorothy you will be truly missed.
