    So sorry for your loss. We have known Dorothy for many years. She was the most kindhearted person to everyone she knew. One of the hardest workers I have ever worked with, everyday she came to work she went above and beyond to make her patients comfortable. She will be sadly missed by all.

    So sorry to hear of Dorothys passing. I grew up watching my mom do her hair and later me doing it. What a class act she always was. Sorry for your family’s loss.
