I met Grandma Dorothy earlier this year. Her grandson Ben is my best friend. I became very close to her. She was another grandma to me. She was such a blessing. Grandma and the family always made me feel like part of their family. I can’t thank them enough. I love her immensely. She always brought a smile to my face and gave the best hugs. She was the sweetest woman I’ve ever met. Rest In Peace sweet Angel. You will forever be loved and missed. I love you Grandma ❤️

I always enjoyed coming to your home and hanging out with all of you. Your mom was always so kind, soft spoken and sweet. It was evident that she loved all of you so very much. We are so sorry you are going through this. One thing for certain is that your mother is reunited with your father in heaven and I hope that brings peace. Love you all. Lori
