Dorothy was a wonderful grandmother to Isabella for these past 12 years. She was the only grandparent that Isabella ever knew and she was so loving! The love was mutual between them, we will miss her so very much.

I was blessed I got to spend a lot of time with her in her final years. It was a gift from God. I would take her to Cox Arboretum to look at the beautiful scenery, sometimes we would just get lunch and go to Lincolon Park and sit at a pinic table. No matter how she was feeling she cared more about you and your well being and health. Aunt Dorothy was always there for you with unconditional love that never changed and to bring a smile to your face, I loved her so much. Aunt Dorothy loved her children and grandchildren so much you could just see it when she would show pictures of them or talk about their visits. If I could dedicate one song to her "Go rest high on that mountain"
