Memories & Candles
To start off, we miss you like crazy! I can not mention you without crying still. There are a few things that I wanted to say at your funeral, but at the time I was not strong enough to stand in front of all of your guests to speak. So, instead I wanted to write it down here for you.
I am one of Dorothy's loved grandchildren and one of the luckiest people in the world to have someone

Though I haven't seen Dorothy for many years, I've always remembered the joy and laughter she brought to us all. She could make each of us feel as if we were the most important person in the room. I know how much she will be missed.

My Grandma was never without a smile for me and especially my girls. She loved all children and knew what they liked, cookies, candy, kool-aid, she was always a hit! Her 7-layer cookies will go down in history along with her beautiful smile and contagious laugh. I will miss you so much, but I know you are happy with Grandpa and Diane by your side. Love you!

Dorothy had such a kind and gentle spirit to go along with that smile. She loved her family and it showed. She has left a great legacy of girls to carry on her love. I am sure her beloved Kenny welcomed her with open arms. You will be missed dear Dorothy...God Bless you!

I will never forget Aunt Dorothy even though I haven't seen her in years. There was never a time, when visiting my Dad, that she was without a smile. I loved when the Aunts and cousins came to visit Grandma Carter and I was there. Aunt Dorothy lit up a room! Her and Uncle Kenny were always laughing! Love to all the family and my condolences for your dear loss.

Dorothy was the ideal Mother and Grandmother, deeply loved by her daughter Carrie, who is my granddaughter by marriage to Eric. Her bright smile and strong love for her family will be missed, but loving memories will persist through time.

Dorothy was a wonderful, loving, gracious person who opened her arms and heart to many people. She was warm and loving to me from the first time we met. We loved going to Dorothy's for Christmas eve and seeing the whole family. We will miss her tremendously.
Our condolences to the daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
