Dear Parker Family, the Cullinan family (my Dad - Pat Sr. & Mom - Mariwin) would like to extended our condolences on the passing of your dear Mother. Dorothy worked with my Dad as an admin asst. for many years at Hallmark. They were a remarkable team and my Dad was so grateful to have partnered with her over the years. He spoke of her fondly in retirement. Not only was she exceptionally capable, but she brought a sweet and helpful attitude to her day-to-day responsibilities. I know this because I also worked for Hmk for many years and she helped me out with a variety of things as well; and always with that warm and engaging smile. I pray you are able to take some comfort in the beautiful memories she left you all.

Dorothy was a joy to be around and so easy to talk with. Our families connected through little league baseball and I always looked forward to sitting with Dorothy and her family during baseball games. Terri and I became good friends during that time as our brothers were teammates and we spent so much time at baseball fields. I have happy memories of those days. My sincere condolences to your family at this time of loss. May you find comfort through these memories and love. Prayers, Karen Moody~Barrett
