  13. I did not know Dorothy
    But over the years leaving next door to Michael and Kaylene and their beautiful girls, I heard the nicest things about Dorothy . How much she loved all her family. I felt as I’ve known her forever.
    My husband and I also saw the pain and sadness the last year in Michael’s face. Dorothy must have been a very special lady.. reading through the different tributes about her as person
    I agree with the wise words that are written in Ecclesiastes 7:1 “ A name is better than good oil “ Dorothy’s name has such value because of the reputation she earned..
    What truly matters is what her name stands for in the minds and hearts of her family, friends, relatives and people like me who only heard good things from Michael and Kaylene.
    We can all imitate her example by finding ways to do good to others that will enrich our own lives

    Our deepest condolences to all who knew and were touched by Dorothy’s life ,especially Michael and Kaylene
