I have always been amazed how steady and even-keeled my mother-in-law has been over the years. No matter how bad a situation.

She would always handle it thoughtfully, without excess emotion. But always compassionately and caring, I can't think of a time where she had ever spoke in anger about anyone.

I truly believe she is one of God's kindest people. Always giving and never thinking of herself. I have been blessed with the best mother-in-law possible.

I LOVE YOU, MOM! And I will always be grateful.

Say Hello and hug my mom and dad when you see them.

I understand that there were several people, on site and on the LiveFeed, that couldn't understand my personal memorial for mom.

Here 'tis...

"I can sleep when I die."
That was our Dorothy. She had the heart of a warrior. She loved and found the good in everyone. Beyond the disappointments and deceits (I speak only of myself). But she loved us all unconditionally.

Dorothy lived in God's Grace every day of her life. When she announced to everyone that she wanted to go into hospice rather than continue chemo, I was angry. I wanted my mom to stay on this earth and continue to be there for ME. Selfish, I know. But I came to believe that she always knew how to handle life on life's terms, and if this is what she thought was best, then who am I to tell her differently. So I had to let her go.

Dorothy walked a path that should be admired by everyone. A great friend of hers said to me, "She was a pure pure soul." No other truer statement has ever been said.

I don't know what it is, but when someone you love leaves this world, and you're feeling all alone to figure things out, there are moments of serendipity and clarity. I'm not sure why it works that way... but for me, it just does.

I want to thank my brother Paul and his family, and my sister and Ron for contributing your time to help mom through this. You're all amazing and sometimes I just don't feel worthy.

But this isn't about me, is it. ;)

I can't thank all of you enough, here in person and on the LiveStream for being with us today.

Of course, mom would have been humbled.

My dear Aunt Dorothy...... she was my confidant ! MY “single parent, GO-TO-GIRL!!!” We could easily spend, an hour or two, on the phone, every time we talked!!!
She was “Everything to me,” A ONE IN A million, different ways !! She would understand me,long before I even went into details !! ( and I would !)
SO much about my Aunt Dorothy, that I ALREADY MISS!

BUT! I don’t have to call her, and leave anymore messages..........
She’s right here with me. I feel her presence....... Her warmth, compassion and EVERLASTING love ....

I love you Aunt Dorothy 💜🌸🌺💐🌹🌸💜💜💜🌸🌹💐🌺🌸🌸🌸🌸

Dorothy was the most selfless person I have had the joy of knowing. During our years working together at LPS, her dedication was inspiring. She always wanted to do her best and her best was incredible. She adored her family and was always there for them. My life is so much better for having her in it and I’m sure this is true for many more. I pray for comfort and peace for her family.
With love and prayers,

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family especially Lisa, Heather and Paul. So sorry for the loss of my dear friend Dorothy. We spent many memorable years at LPS and our favorite restaurant. She will be deeply missed. May you find comfort from the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3) whose name is Jehovah Psalms 83:18. (nwt)

Keeping you all in my prayers.

Aunt Dorothy was always a Barbie Doll to me! So beautiful in both body and spirit. I was her flower girl at her wedding and I still remember that day. She always made everyone feel that they were special. Sympathy to my cousins Lisa, Paul, and Heather and their families.

My thoughts go to Dorothy's family I worked with Dorothy when she was with LPS Labs. She and I worked together as I was one of the RSM's assigned to her. She was very good to me and the guys she supported. Very good person, family oriented and just a joy to work with. May God bless her and God bless her family who she was very proud of. I was very fortunate to get to know her she was the best!
