Condolences

I had the privilege of getting to know Dorothy while at the Care Center. She was kind, caring, appreciative, and unassuming. She was a true lady in every sense of the word.
She would often say “why are you so good to me?”. I would always answer, because you are easy to be good to. She appreciated everything. She was polite, with a smile that warmed your heart. I will miss her.
My deepest sympathy to her loving family.

Where so sorry for your loss. We are thinking of you at this time and saying a lot of prayers for you. If you need anything, please reach out. With our deepest sympathy... The Mitchell Family.
