I knew Dorthy as a child growing up at Central Church of the Nazarene. She was always so sweet to me, and a precious precious lady who always had a hug for me. I truly loved her! I look forward to seeing her in Heaven! Joe Hoffman

Dorothy was a part of the Secret Pals, then she joined Chiclets, and finally - she was one of our Joybelles. I had a nice lunch with her after she got settled in to her new dwelling. She sent many cards to others when she was able. I counted her among my good friends at Central Nazarene.
