Condolences

All warm thoughts to the Taylor family and a big, long hug to Ted. Dorothy was one of those ladies I would always want to visit with no matter where I'd run into her. She will be missed.

Remember some great times in my younger years visiting and enjoying family reunions sorry for your loss prayers for comfort

Ted and family with a heavy heart we send our deepest condolences. Dorothy will be missed by many.
I don’t think she knew how much fun, she was, we could talk and laugh for hours. When I say we I mean Dorothy, Nancy Z. & Nancy R. The times we had, stories told, and Dorothy was so gullible, Nancy & I would tell a tall tale and get her going, when she caught on she always said “ oh you girls” and we’d all have a good laugh.
Farewell my friend, till we meet again. Tell Nancy Z. I miss her too.

Dear Ted,
I have such fond memories of you and Dorothy at Outdoor Education camp! You both always had a smile for me whenever I went through the food line to get my tray of food. Dorothy's smile would light up the room! Ted, I am praying comfort and peace for you as you go on without the love of your life. May God hold you tightly in the days to come. Sending a huge hug for you, my friend.

So sorry to read of Dorothy's passing. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by many. Remember the good times. God bless and keep. Hi
