It has always been a pleasure to provide care to Dorothy. From the first day I met her at Hearthstone Health Campus to the last day I saw her at Stonecroft Health Campus she has brought laughter and love to my life.
My favorite memory of Dorothy was when she would fix my hair for me every morning when I brought her medicine to her at Hearthstone.
I will miss you dearly sweet Dorothy.

I've been lucky to have gotten to know Dorothy the past 2 years, and it has been my honor to assist in caring for her. Dorothy brought life and laughter to us all at StoneCroft and she will be greatly missed. I'll always remember her and the way she could make me laugh. It breaks my heart to hear this news and my condolences are with you all in this time of sorrow. I will keep you in my thoughts. Thank you for allowing me the chance to be a part of your mother's life.
