Dorothy was such a fun loving and delightful lady, and my husband and I loved her and valued our friendship with her. Dorothy loved our Lord so much, loved and cherished and was so very proud of her two sons and her entire family, and she loved First Baptist Church-Rowlett and her Good Shepherd Sunday School Class. I talked to her on February 5th for the last time and our class sent her a card for her birthday on February 8th. She loved and appreciated hearing about her Good Shepherd S.S. Class and about First Baptist Church-Rowlett and I enjoyed sharing those things with Dorothy since she could no longer attend. She was indeed
a special lady and will be greatly missed.
Our Love, Sympathy and Prayers to her Sons and Her Entire Family -
