    Dottie was a wonderful, Christian friend. We shall always treasure the many hours we spent with her and Dick discussing the scriptures. We praise the Lord she is home with her savior.

    I read of Dorothy’s passing yesterday and I wanted to say that I’m sorry for your loss. She was a really fine lady who always seem to have a smile on her face. She always treated me really nice. The two things that I remember about Dorothy is that she liked to play solitaire and she made great macaroni and cheese……yummy! When I read her obituary, I didn’t realize Dick had passed away also. Both your parents were really good people. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
