Sorry to hear the passing of Dorothy. I have many fond memories of her and Jay along with her Mother Mamie. Dorothy and Jay used to babysit me when I was younger and Mamie would take me to church on Saturday's. My heart goes out to the family and my prayers that you all find comfort and strength in our Lord Jesus Christ during the days ahead. I am sure she will be missed by many. God has welcomed our dear Dorothy home she has left a trail of many good memories behind.
May God be with you all,
Tammy Peterman
