So sorry to read in the paper of the passing of Dorothy, we got to know and love Dorothy when we were assigned as her home and visiting teachers. Every time we would visit she always has a big smile for us and always said she was doing good. We will miss her sweet spirit but know she is in a much better place. our condolences go out to her family and loved ones! Derald and Janet Ferrin
