Dorothy will be missed very much. Jack picked up Dorothy in the church parking lot every Sunday on the golf cart and dropped her off at the front door. Karen always greeted Dorothy inside the door. We lived in the same community and were neighbors and friends. Whenever Dorothy was unable to attend church she was missed. May God comfort the family during their time of grief.

Dear Mark and Mike, I am thinking of you and your families and sending you prayers. I didn’t know your mother but I know you two. She must have been a wonderful person. Fondly, Maureen

To all the family, saddened as I am, my heart goes out to you. Aunt Dorothy was one of my favorites and I will remember fondly the many fun times our families, Ron (Don's twin), Jody, me, Rick, and Greg; and Don & Dot and Mark, Mike, and Shelley spent together. I especially recall the time I found myself in Phoenix and broke away from all the meetings to visit her and Don there. I wish I could be with everyone in Kansas City to see her put to rest. Like many who are now caring for elderly relatives in our homes, remaining in place is safest. At times like this, though, there is some comfort to be taken in Psalm 30, that joy comes with the morning.
