Our Sincere Condolences

Our Ms Dorothy was a beautiful, caring, compassionate, talented, giving lady, but most of all our friend. She was a good friend to many as was evident by how many honored her at her service.
Over the years that we knew her, we shared some wonderful, fun times together. We have great memories.
Dorothy was very blessed by some very dear friends who took great care of her in her time of need. They are saints in my book and her guardian ANGELS.
God bless you Ms Dorothy, you made it to your eternal home free of pain and are now at peace.
Blessings to her grandchildren whom she dearly loved. I hope you each have some wonderful memories of your grandmother to remember her by.
God be with you.
