Jul 23.16 from Dan & Deanna Woodard:
My introduction to Dorothy was in the Letchworth cafeteria 50 years ago this fall. In the course of time (for the past 35 years) it was a joy to know her through having the occasional meal in her home when back in the area on furlough. Her smile was always such a warm encouragement. Our hearts are with the entire family and Rock Glen church family during this time of such great loss. There's a Land that is fairer than day, and by faith we will be reunited with Dorothy again on the other side. And Lord, haste the day when our faith will be sight and clouds be rolled back like a scroll!

Until we meet again I hold your memories close to my heart. Such a loving woman who touched so very many lives. We celebrate her passing, but pray that God fills the empty spots for those left behind. She will be greatly missed until the reuniting happens. God bless this family.
