Dorothy was such an inspiration to me. I loved to listen to her stories, and hear her sing with such passion for the Lord. Her faith was so strong, and she knew where she was going after her life on earth was through. She is singing in a Heavenly Choir now. I will miss Dorothy greatly, but she is truly healed and whole now. Praise God!
