Katie, Brad and I loved Sister Throckmorton. She was always so kind and sweet to us when we lived in the Gonzales Ward. She was a very strong woman and a great example of Christlike love. Loved her so much.

Words can not say how sorry I am for your loss. Ms. Dot was my favorite patient in the AD unit and she always made going to work such a pleasure. She will be sadly missed by all of us at LCLC. May she Rest In Peace.
My condolences to the entire family.

As a young boy, I remember Dorothy always at church and always involved. My mother knew her well and both women gave countless hours of service in the church. My extended family offers condolences to her family whom we have loved for many years.

What a wonderful woman and example to me. I thought of you more as a dear mother than a mother in law. You lived your life in accordance with the Gospel, in which you loved. Your love of the Lord was evident in all you did and through all your life experiences. How blessed I have been to know you and how blessed heaven is this day.
