Dear Vickie and Steve,
We send our condolences and prayers to you during your time of grief. It was our pleasure to meet your lovely Mother, Ms. Dorothy. We will miss seeing her in the neighborhood, walking her dog and occasionally stopping to chat. She was a nice lady and we loved having her as our neighbor. God bless you.

Very Best,

Dorothy (Dottie) was such a fun person to be around. She was a good card player with a sharp mind and a caring personality. She will be missed by many. To a life well lived!
