Not sure what to say?

I am heartbroken to learn months late about the loss of this wonderful lady. Her sunny ways and marvelous sense of humor have been a model for me since we worked together in the 1960s. Thanks, Dorothy, for all the warm and funny memories that we shared.

Dorothy, you will indeed be missed with your bright smile and cheerful word for all! You have left your "mark" on many of us who knew you as friend. God's speed to your reward!
Blessings...Fr. Charles

With love and sympathy.

I've known Dorothy for 36 years and, in all that time, never left a conversation with her without a smile. She was such a kind, caring, classy, elegant, and gracious lady -- and had a talent for making people feel better than themselves. Someone like Dorothy just can't be spared. My condolences to her family.

We have many fond memories of times spent in your company. Many will remember you with love and fondness. Adieu
