Dorothy is much more than a friend to me and many countless others.
We enjoyed time together going to our monthly Avon meetings. We laughed a lot and WOW she was always busy. She had a way of making everyone smile. I visited with her in her home when she was keeping her grandson, Danny! She was so proud of him.
And talk about a green thumb! She had the most beautiful plants inside and outside her home.
I could write a book about Dorothy but I'll finish by saying. ❤"til we meet again in heaven".
Sending love and prayers to the family.

When I was growing up on Hill Street. Dorothy lived across the street from me. She was my friend and confidant. She talked to me about boy stuff when I was in high school. She sewed a lot of my clothes and even made my bridesmaids dresses for my wedding. I loved her so much. She was a great friend to our whole family and she even named her daughter, Dina, after my grandmother. She will be greatly missed but we know where she has gone. She was a great Christian❤️
