I remember when my mother and me would come by and see our cousin, we would just laugh and talk and have a good time. I know she is in heaven laughing and talking with mom now.

Ms. Dorothy was always nice to me. I believed her to be a hard working lady who loved and cared for her family. She always had a smile when I would see her. We would always have a nice conversation also when time permitted. I believe that God blessed her with long life here on earth but she has now transitioned over to a life everlasting. I will see again someday Ms. Dorothy.

Such a precious lady. I have several memories of her . She was a great lady who loved her patients she cared for . She was so sweet to me .

My special memory of this wonderful lady was that no matter where Dorothy was on her way to, and if you knew Dorothy she walked really fast, but she would come over to me, call out my name, give me the warmest hug and she would tell anyone that was around that she loved Carolyn and I loved Dorothy !! She always made everyone around her feel happy and I never saw her without a big smile or without something funny to say to make you laugh. She didnt remember me as she got sick, but I will never forget this Angel on earth who gave me her love unconditionally in a time in my life when I needed it most. A time that no matter what, I had someone that truly believed I was worth loving and no matter what I will hold that love in my heart forever. I love you Dorothy and I believe that you know that. Always and Forever

After she retired, I worked at the Pennyroyal Center that was located behind her and I would go over and visit with her during my lunch hour. I will always remember how much I enjoyed being with her. No matter what stress and worried she had of her own and her family she always had time for everyone else.

I remember working at the nursing she was a cna and I worked in the kitchen we used to cut up with her all the time we would say something just to get her started.
