Though I can not attend on Saturday I will be with you in spirit.
I enjoyed knowing Dorotha during the years I was a
member at South Shore.
So sweet and warm she always lifted me up.
May God strengthen and bless all who loved her.

Deepest sympathy to Doug & James, & families. The Marston family loved Dorotha so very much. She was a second mother to my brother, a dear friend to my mother, & always a joy for me to visit. She opened her home to us when we went back to visit in Corpus. She & my mother are visiting in Heaven now.
