I will miss her calling me on her way home from work, she was always in a good mood it seemed and never complained. I loved that little giggle she had as we talked. She was definitely one of a kind, her sweet manner will be missed.
We shared the same name and it wasn't until recently that I understood the middle name came from her grandmother and my Aunt.

I was fortunate to share many memories with Dorothy. I had my first hibachi experience with Dorothy and Gina. Gina and Dorothy introduced me to Hard Rock Cafe nachos. We've shopped many Black Fridays together and always somehow managed to snag all the great deals. We've shared margaritas and cheese dip together. We released butterflies at Gina's wedding together. We've floated in Tina's pool. We’ve celebrated birthdays together, we’ve laughed together, we’ve gone to concerts together and we’ve worried over Gina and her twins together. I will miss her easygoing temperament and her laugh the most. She was a generous mother who loved her daughters and grandchildren and family something fierce.

i remember meeting momma Dorothy when I was in 5th or 6th grade - little did I know she would become like a second momma to me . She always seemed so relaxed and loving about things and had a way to make things so fun. I enjoyed her spunk and approaches about fellow females and situations . She is the only woman to have an honest relationship with her daughters like I have with my mother . I am forever grateful and honored to have met momma Dorothy and share this love I have for her 💗 Though I am miles apart a piece of my heart is with Becca, Gina and Tina I love you ladies so much xoxo thank you Becca for inviting me into your family those many yrs ago.🌸
