Dorthy babysat my grandson for about 5 or 6 years. Every Monday morning she would ask him what he learned at Sunday school. After a few weeks he ask me to take him to church. At the time our family was not going to church, but he kept asking. So I decided to take him to the church I had gone to as a child. Zion Lutheran Church. We have been going ever since. Nicholas was confirmed there and in 2001 I met my husband there and was married. Later I ask Nicholas why he kept asking me about church and he said that Dorothy kept asking him and he wanted to tell her something. Now my granddaughters go there and my other daughter. Thanks to Dorthy she changed our families lives. About two weeks ago Nicholas and I were talking about Dorothy and drove by her house. Nicholas just celebrated his 26th birthday.
