Sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing but we know she would be unhappy spending the rest of her days in a room in a "rest" home.  She was a farm lady.  My Aunt Ruby and I enjoyed seeing her at the restaurant when Dorothy was able to drive in town for lunch.

Bill and Regina, my Regina and I feel for you in your loss. Dorothy was always kind to me. One of the last times I saw her, she prepared a plate of food for me at the church. She was committed and kind--a friend. May the Lord bless you and your whole family.
