So sorry to hear this. I remember visiting her and Sherrel. He and dad were good friends as well as her and mom. Dorothy and Viva would come to our house to visit. So many laughs between the three. Her family is in my prayers.

Aunt Dorothy was the epitome of a kind, patient and gentle soul. We should all strive to be the Christian example that Aunt Dorothy was for others.
May God hold you ever so closely in the days ahead and give you peace and comfort as you reflect on and cherish the beautiful memories you have of Aunt Dorothy.
With heartfelt sympathy and condolences.
