Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my friend and family. You were an amazing woman and we wouldn't have been able to raise our 3 beautiful children without all the help you so selflessly gave. You were the glue that held us together when everything else was falling apart. I will never forget your warmth and love that you had for us. Every time I look at our children I see your eyes staring back at me and that makes my heart happy. Thank you for taking time to come to all of the kids extracurricular activities and cheering them on. They will forever remember that. I've learned so many things from you, but I didn't learn how to do things without you. I'm going to miss you forever and always. Rest easy, Dorothy. I love you💜
