I'm sorry I thought I had sent this message before. It evidently didn't go through.
I am sorry for your loss. She was such a lovely lady and so much fun to talk too. Please take care. Sincerely Judy :sigh:

I am sad to hear of Aunt Dorothy's passing. Wish I could have been able to make it up there for the services. She was always fun to talk to and I will never forget her. Thoughts and prayers for Betty Kay and Mary Jo during this difficult time. I know she is resting peacefully in heaven with Jesus now, and we will have a heck of a guardian angle looking after us!

Betty Kay and Mary Jo,
You have my sympathy in the loss of your
mother. I wish that I could come to her
funeral. I remember Dorothy coming to my
mother's funeral in the bitter cold of January 1991. I also remember having so much fun playing at your house as a kid.
I'll pray for her and the rest of your family.
