My heart has shattered today as I'm sure so many others have learning of the loss of a most precious and dear friend.
I will cherish my memories of our good times from canning to crocheting from gardening to just good ole girl gossip. I was proud to call Dorothy my lil' mama. May the family find comfort knowing she's at peace.
