I am Mike and Dorothy's neighbor. I met Dorothy in later years,after I began to help sit with her when Mike was busy. To entertain her Mike ,Julie and I would watch t.v. with her, take her out to dinner,take her to the doctor and take her for long rides and play bat the balloon with her. She seemed to enjoy these activities in spite of her affliction. During our rides she would often hold my hand which indicated to me that she was always a kind person. Mike, Julie and her family took very good care of her and I'm glad that I was able to participate in a small way. She will be missed.

Dorothy was my best friend for years. She was an angel, a saint. I never heard a disparaging word come from her mouth about anyone. She always had a gentle inviting smile for friends and strangers alike. The world is more desolate with her passing.
