    To the Jones & McKibben family, I am so truly sorry for your loss. Dorothy was always so sweet and welcoming when I came to her home. Even years of not coming I’d always enjoy driving past her house going somewhere and seeing her let out those dogs she loved oh so much. I know she loved all her kids and grand kids and great grand kids all so much and I know how lucky she was to have all of you in her life as you were lucky to have her in all of yours. Her memory will live on in each and every one of you guys. If any one of you ever need me for anything I’m a phone call away.
