Larry and I were very sad to hear about Dorothy. We will always remember our visits with Dorothy in her flower garden and her smiling face. God bless you and your family during this time of sorrow.

We are so sorry to hear about Dorothy. She was very special to us. She always had a smile on her face and a joke in her heart. She was Mickey's O2 patient with Lincare for a little over 1 yr. He really enjoyed going to see her.

Miss Dorothy was a sweet person and she loved her family so much. She talked about them often and loved going to Rowlett on visits. I enjoyed every signle conversation I had with her and when she wasn't feeling well, she was still cheerful and one of the most pleasant people I have know. Lorretta Johnson

So sorry to hear of your loss. This was a very special lady to me. I was once married to her nephew Ronnie. We spent many times talking to each other and she was such a loving and caring woman. I would run into her at the store and it was always such a joy to see her. She was Aunt Dot to me and will always be. I regret that I can't make it to the services because of prior commitments but I do want you to know that she was dear to me and that you will be in my prayers. God bless you and be with you in the upcoming days. Shirley Cowan
