To my friend Tim, Mothers take us to a point in life when they know you are ready to leave. However , they are always there with you throughout your life. You are part of them. Unconditional love forever! Although you are sad with grief, one day, in time, you will find out it is okay. You will smile and realize she never really left you at all... mike

I remember Dorothy through the Department on Aging. It was there she taught anyone in her audience valuable lessons, usually teed up through a golf analogy. I still quote Dorothy to this day in my daily life; bits of precious wisdom and humor. She invited me to her house on several occasions, and I happily accepted the invitation. I would have followed her anywhere. Her style was trend setting. Most importantly, the example she set: of the importance of community, hard work, and to never give up will stay with me, always. And, although her age greatly numbered in years, her spirit was that of youth. What struck me the most about Dorothy, was the closeness in which she spoke of her family. The matter-of-fact tone of the everyday; nothing missed; no words unsaid. Comfort to the family during this time of loss: and, please know that I am not the only one that she touched in this way. I am just one of many. I hope to one day have the great privilege once again of sitting in her “audience.”
