Dear Bonnie, Barry, Jody, Jamie, David and Jan,

Your Mother was such an eloquent woman with many talents and always a smile on her face. Know that she will be united with her parents, husband, many relatives and friends who have passed before her. I will always remember the happy times we've shared through the years. Take care.

Cousins, MaryAnn and Mickey

My deepest condolence on Dorothy's passing. I enjoyed living across the street from her on 2nd Ave, we had some wonderful talks and shared memories. I'm the person who bought her Mom's house on South Morrow 22 years ago. I always felt so blessed that she sold it to me, I've always felt very at home in it. God Bless, now she is home with Pete again.

Our deepest sympathies to all of you. We go way back with special memories of the old "swim team" days when we first met your mom. I'm happy to have run in to her shopping a few times and she was always the same smiling and cordial Dorothy. A lovely lady in every sense of the word.
