Dorothy was a loving caring person who would bend over back words to help anyone. Her words were spoken with wisdom when she spoke to you. She will be DEEPLY missed by all she touched. I was one of her son-in-laws. I was deeply sadden by her passing.When she spoke she spoke of passion, wisdom, and leadership. My prayers and thoughts go out to all of the family. I miss you all.
