That is a very nice obituary.
What an amazing life story, obviously related by a devoted and loving son. My Mom, who died in '81, was a lot like your
Mom. They were a rare breed, with a strong dedication to others. May you, John, fellow colt, and your family continue to be blessed by her memories.
John, what lovely obituary and life story. Over the years, Dorothy told me many stories about her life-- but only in bits and pieces. You have woven them together beautifully.
John, this is a wonderful history. I am so sorry for your loss, not to mention Aaron's, Siobhan's, Dulci's, and Vicky's. I liked visiting with Dorothy and listening to her stories. She took a lot of pride keeping up her house and the back garden. She will be truly missed.
John, as a fellow "colt" I think you wrote a wonderful history of a woman that was both a devoted wife and mother and an intelligent sort to have been "involved" for so long. May she rest in peace and know John, that you were a GOOD son! Condolences to you and your family.
I did not know your mom, but I read her obituary this Sunday. Her story touched me. She was a remarkable person who I could learn a few lessons from being a Navy wife myself. I prayed for her and your family may you find peace.
John, you wrote about emerging from a long tunnel and my heart echos your sentiments. My own family has several members with dementia and I lost my mother two years ago in similar fashion. You were a good and loving son. Your Mother's dedication to her family shines through in the work you do. Fondly, Lynn DeWoskin Covarrubias--class of '66
Though I didn't know your mother, she must have been a wonderful woman to have raised a son with such fine character.
Dorothy, you lead quite a life. May you rest in peace. All the best to you John.
