Sister Dorothy was a most special lady in all ways. The children and I loved her at St. Joseph's and I will never forget her and all the true Christian values she shared with all of us. She was always smiling and radiated God's love. Now there is no doubt she is in heaven and humbly wears a crown of jewels that she so rightly deserves. I feel so blessed that she was my friend.
