My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Dorothy. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Dorothy personally we do understand the pain of losing one so dear. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful source of comfort, he is always there for the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit ( Psalm 34:18) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.

May was an amazing woman who touched so many lives. She made the world a better, and more fun, place. She will be remembered by many and will hold a special place in our hearts until we meet again in Heavan. God bless her family and comfort them in her loss.

May was always the life of the party. In the 70’s, my Mother and I would play a card game called OH Hell with May, Mae Pratorius, Dottie Walsh, Helen Nash, Loyce Razor, and Josephine Taylor. May was always so kind and very proud of her family. To my knowledge all these ladies are no longer with us. I am so happy to have spent many a Friday with May and her friends.

I'll always remember celebrating Mardi Gras with your mom and dad in Galveston in 1985 - the year Ashley was born! We had a special reserved table at a restaurant right in the heart of things. So much fun! Your mom had such a great sense of humor and loved you madly. I know she'll always be in your heart, Marianne. You were a wonderful daughter. lots of love to you and your family ~ Patty
