Dear Karen and family…
Dorothy was such a godsend to our family…she came to our rescue when we had full time jobs and needed someone to take care of Katie and Guy when they were kids. I remember Dorothy was always so positive and kind…she truly was like another grandparent for our kids. We are so grateful she was part of our lives and we hope that your memories bring you comfort in the coming days as you deal with your loss.
