Dorothy was a saved and a Godly woman always wanting to share her love with others. She was the backbone, that kept our family together, planning family reunions, cookouts, going camping, she and her husband loved to do. The met many people during those years. She was a saved Godly woman and loved attending church even if she didn’t feel like it, if you sat beside her in church and chewed gum, she would tell you “Stop popping, or chewing that gum” or she would just hand you a tissue. Life is going to be different now without her in our lives, but we know when our names are called, we have to answer it. It is never a goodbye, but we say see you later! We loved her dearly, but God loved her more.
