My condolences to Dorothy's family. I knew her through our dear family friend Dudley Frasure, who we would visit every so often in Sherbourne back in the 1960's and 70's. I was a child then, but my folks Corinne and Bill Abrahamson would visit going back to the late 1940's I believe. It is definitely the end of an era. She lived a good long life, as did my Mom, who passed away only 6 weeks after Dorothy. Hopefully they have reconnected in the great beyond.

My sincere and deepest sympathies during this most difficult time. You've lost a strong, loving and caring family matriarch. May you find some comfort in the promises recorded at John 5 vs 28, 29; 1 Corinthians 15 vs 25, 26 and Revelation 21 vs 3, 4. I am so very sorry for your loss. I would have loved to have met her.
