Not sure what to say?

Mrs.Blackstone is easy to love....just like her daughter Amber. I hope I'll get to join up with her someday at The Heavenly Banquet. Enjoy your well deserved mighty nap, Dorothy. I know you were looking forward to it. You'll be very missed.

Aunt Dorothy was always smiling. A calming force, grace under fire, ALWAYS. Beautiful, loving, sweet, caring, cuter than a bugs ear, loving mother and grandmother. Peace be with you Dorothy. Your spirit and memory will be with us forever. Love you and God bless.........

Dorothy was my best friend for 41 years. She was a wonderful person and I feel blessed to have had her in my life. Our families took many vacations together. I will never forget those times. Dorothy had such a fantastic sense of humor, eyes would water and stomach hurt from laughing so much. She truly was a woman after God's own heart. I saw her the Sunday before and we prayed together and she said that she wasn't afraid. She was looking forward to being in her heavenly home with Jesus.

I'll always remember Dorothy's giggle. She was always ready to laugh and joke about events of the day, or mishaps from the past. She always seemed to be in a good mood. We have so many great memories growing up with the Blackstone kids, and Bob and Dorothy going on Family vacations to Ocean Shores and to Canada. Dorothy always had a joke or an observation that cracked everyone up! She will be missed, God rest her soul.

Thank you to everyone who writes on this guestbook, it means a great deal to Bill, Amber and myself. What can I say in a few words about my mom? She was a deeply caring and spiritual person. That's what made her such an appealing personality. If you were a friend of mom's, you were a friend for life. She had a wonderful disarming way about her that invited you to want to talk with her. She cared about people deeply. She always wanted to know how people were "doing" in life. She...

When I think Of Dorothy, I see her smile. She always seemed so happy..... She used her time here on earth well. She spread the sense of kindness and well being....

She WAS one-in-a-million. Soft-spoken, humble, filled with humility and great conversationalist. I remember when Amber was little and taking piano lessons from me - Dorothy took a picture of our beautiful tree in blossom - in our front yard. Gardening! She loved nature. And I loved her and will remember her always. Her legacy is surely the three great children she and Bob raised. Love, Auntie ReRe :)

I will never forget that sweet voice of hers... And her sense of humor has had me laughing until it hurts for so many wonderful years.

Thank you Mom Blackstone first and foremost for having such a wonderful Daughter, Amber Lee who I am very blessed to call my best friend. And thank you for being such a huge influence in my life. You will be so very missed, but you will be remembered SO forever fondly just as often. See you on the other side DJ.

I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful and loving mother. I will miss her so much. I am so thankful to have enjoyed so many beautiful times with her. She truly was the most loving and caring person I have ever known. I miss her dearly.
