Rodney & Kenny, I’m so sorry to learn of Aunt Dorothy’s passing . Life got away from us and sad that we all lost touch with one another. I have sweet memories though of those days when families visited one another & I especially always looked forward to Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Otha Lee’s visits ! They were a beautiful couple.
Your mom was a natural beauty and I can still remember her laugh and smile ! Sorry, I will be unable to attend the service in keeping with these crazy unreal
times ! The love and fond memories will never fade ! Blessings to you and your family until the day we can meet & catch up again! Linda Nelson Watson

So sorry for the loss of such a beautiful lady. I loved going to her house as a child and playing with the boys. They were nice boys. I also loved going to church with the DeLuish family and being with Dot Dot too. Very fond memories of a lovely family. I pray God gives comfort, peace, and strength to you all. Love and blessings to the family.
