My sincere condolences to Dorothy's beautiful family and many friends. She will be greatly missed by many. I so enjoyed her sweet, vivacious, and fun spirit. I have no doubt she is in heaven right now with OB and Gary and many others. And oh yea, I can only speculate what she is having them do, lol! RIP Mrs. Arnold, love you.
