    Every life has a purpose to fill, a purpose which us humans can seldom infer. Dorothy was a gift from heaven, whose purpose was to make the world understand what love, friendship, goodness, and humbleness was all about. Goodness belongs in heaven, we know Dorothy is watching all from there, bestowing her beautiful laughter and smile upon you and your family. May her soul rest in peace.
    Our deepest condolences. May God give you the comfort and peace.

    It doesn’t matter how old we are, we’re never old enough to be orphans. So sorry about your Mom. I remember her visiting my Mom and all the talking the two of them did!
