Dorothy had Logan with her one day and she introduced me to Logan as "The Old Fart" and from that point on he called me the old fart. Dorothy was the type of person who left a memory forever in our hearts. She was great friends with my wife...she will be missed.

Our deepest condolences to the family. What memories that we all have together as we grew up. Whether it was Dorothy and the girls coming to our house or us going to theirs we always made it memorable and lots of fun. It was also awesome to gain a couple more friends when Dorothy got married to Jack. We loved Michelle and Amy just as much. Dorothy was an amazing lady and you'll be missed deeply by everyone's life you touched.
