To the Family of Dorothy Dedrick
My deepest sympthy to all her grieving family who Dottie dearly loved and was very proud. Dottie's undaunted spirit, enthusiasm, knowledge, and humor (a great laugh) carried Dottie through her life's journey. Dottie wore many hats, but to me she was a caring and thoughtful cousin and friend. I will miss her newsy letters,phone chats, book deliveries,and recent and planned visits. Dottie made every minute count. Rest in peace dear cousin. You will be dearly missed.
