To her family.

New feelings come,
Old feelings go,
But everything feels the same to me.
Some people die,
The rest of us should remember their lives.

Let us remember the love and care she gave throughout her long life.

Aunt Dorothy was quite a woman of accomplishment. We should aim to be more giving of our time and talents. She will be missed by many.

To the family,
I knew Dorothy as Grandma, (Susan's). She had a quick wit and beautiful eyes. She was a strong woman, someone to be admired. Though I only met her in person a few times over many years, I felt that I knew her via Susan's stories.
You are in our thoughts and prayers,
Kerry Ott

To the family,
My sincere condolences on the loss of someone so dear to so many. Dorothy and I became good friends, neighbors and she was my mentor. She was always ready to hand out advice when I was upset about something, and would remind me that I shouldn't worry about things I couldn't change. She was always there with a treat for me and would come out to visit whenever I was across the street working on flowers or working on hers. I will miss her kind, sweet voice, her vegetable and chicken noodle soup. In all of her pain that she was having she made sure I had soup to eat when my daughter was having surgery. Dorothy was one of a kind, for sure, and I will miss bringing her bread and just seeing her. Rest in peace, my dear friend.
