You were my aunt my godmother and my mom. You consider me one of your own. You and pop walked me down the aisle the day that I married my soulmate. You a woman that would do anything for anyone with such a big heart. You were always there for me when that was a good time a bad time all the time. You made a very big impact on my life and I'm going to miss you so much. I love you Mom

Dearest Dorothy, I remember after meeting your daughter, Yvonne, that I had actually known you from our days working at Deaconess Hospital and the laughs over Arthur. I remember when you came to my house take care of me after my knee surgery. I will cherish always the embroidered pillow cases and how you called me "your other daughter". Rest well, my dear.
