Dear Dorothy, We will miss you. You were very sharp in your mind, and you accomplished quite a bit of things in your life with your arthritis. I enjoyed your company and always enjoyed giving you a hard time. I know the last few years have not been easy but you endured it very well. We now wish you can live your live in peace and happiness. You can now be with our "Maker" Jesus Christ; what a gift that has to be for you. It is sad for us to see you go, and it is sad for us to have seen you suffer, but now you shall be able to rest in peace with the Lord. My prayers go out to your brothers and sisters and families and you were very special to all of us. Love you Dorothy, hopefully we will meet again some day!
