My condolences to Dorothy my University of Alabana AFRO Choir buddy. It was a great pleasure to meet your bubbly bigger than life mom. I will never forget my first meeting with your mom and dad. They soon treated me like one of their own. Your mom was a special and beautiful person. She had a way to make you smile. I know that you will miss her but she has some phenomenal children and as she might say my girls get that from me their mom
I love you Dorothy, DJ, and Porsha. You are in my prayers
