We are so very sorry for your loss. Dody was a wonderful Aunt and friend and will be missed. It's like one of those FB posts where you don't see people for long stretches of time but they are still very much in your heart. She will always be in ours. Love you all and take care. D&D

Chris, Craig, Curt, Cal and your families. I know it's hard to lost a parent who loved you, scolded you but was always there for you. I hope the memories you have of her will sustain you during your days of grieving. Just take it one day at a time, cry if you need, talk about your memories of her, laugh when a memory tickles your funny bone. The sadness does ease but the heart will always hold the love you have for her. Take care. I will keep you all in my prayers. I am sorry I am unable to travel back for her service but the weather isn't what I like to travel in anymore. Love to all, Aunt Dorothy

Chris, Craig, Curt & Cal, Just wanted to let you know that I have such fond memories of Aunt Dody. All of the times she took us to Valley Beach when we were young--so much fun! She always had a gentle smile and an affectionate heart! You are very blessed! So sorry to hear of her passing.

I will miss my beautiful Aunt Dody. I will always remember her smile and the twinkle in her eye. I will miss her texts about the weather and sports.

I am so saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend, Dody. When we both first moved to Tennessee, she was my rock when I was so homesick I wanted to give up and move back to Ohio. We had so many good times together, and many, many long talks. Please accept my condolences on her passing. I pray for comfort and peace for all of you boys and your families. RIP Dody! You will be missed.
