Mrs. Freeman Heaven has received a beautiful angel. I cannot imagine you not being across the street from my parents home anymore, have always thought of you as family. I remember walks with you in the neighborhood, you stepping on that tiny snake! Don't think I have ever seen you move so fast!! LOL You are such a loving soul with a wonderful sense of humor that will never be replaced. You have such a special place in my heart and I love you always. RIP and blessings for your beautiful family. My love, Angela

My dear Aunt Dorothy how I loved you. I will always remember you and your precious funny laugh, I can hear it now. I have good memories of you the times we stayed with you, never knew if we were going to the city dump or the bread store . I will never forget you, you will always have a special place in my heart. I am glad I got to see you daily when you were in the nursing home where I worked. You loved your cokes and honey buns , always made sure you had them, enjoyed being with you in the last year's of your life. So you can rest now all your cokes are paid for in heaven so enjoy. I Love you dearly , will see you again. Tell my mom hi for me.😁😁😁

Sherrie,

I was sadden to hear of your mom's passing. I know that she is now singing with the Angels and walking the streets of gold. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ms. Dorothy, My heart is sad today since I learned of your passing. But I'm sure you are rejoicing in heaven with unspeakable joy. I sure will miss our visits, chats on the phone and meals we shared together. You had a way about you that we could always laugh about something because of your witty nature. You were a wonderful Mother to your girls; and the best neighbor I ever had. One final good-bye but never forgotten my friend. RIP

God Bless Your Family
Sharon

Aunt Dot was a very special person in my life. I spent many summers at her home. She always made sure that I felt welcome. After my family moved from Burkburnett to Longview I always knew if I needed a place to stay Aunt Dots home was there for me. Love you Aunt Dot . RIP
