A woman truly in Love with her Lord. She always displayed the feet & hands of Jesus. I actually owe my life to her as she brought my mom & dad together in 1945. Admired by all her family & remained a powerful prayer warrior for many of us. I am sure right now she & Ralph are talking up a storm. Will miss her, but know that we will see each other again.

Miss you very much Aunt Dorothy. Best times, working in the garden you and Uncle Ed planted.
Great time visiting your house in the “Bridge”. Rest in peace, you are with the lord now.
