Dorothy was a light in my life and though we met for a short time while on Roma Downey’s book team , we quickly managed to stay in touch often . My two younger children’s photos and video are a part of her website as we were so moved by her enthusiasm for life and we loved her book so much ! Dotsy was so full of gratitude ! We love her so much and we are saddened by this great loss . I have made the Facebook groups we are a part of aware of her passing and everyone sends so much love to her family . I am going to do many acts of kindness and always remember her spirit. Though I don’t know what happened to her I know now she is at peace and probably in a wonderful place because she had an amazing heart . Please accept our deepest condolences in this time of need . Love light and warm prayers from Dea and from my children Giuliana and Daniel and from our family
