Dorothy was a very special friend in my life. We met and worked at Frances Haddon Morgan together. She was always there with a smile, a laugh, and a caring touch through these years. She will be missed by all she touched with her beautiful spirit. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bob and her family. May God Bless and be with you all.
With deepest sympathy,
Mariana Cornish and family
