From: Anne Canfield
So sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. Dorothy was a remarkable family member, Church and community member and above all Disciple of The Lord. She touched the lives of so many people with her servant's heart. I have no doubt what a wondrous reunion there was in heaven when The Lord graciously received her home and she was reunited with her beloved Gene. Undoubtedly Dorothy has taken on the role of the new "Pea Lady" in heaven. She will be missed and remembered with love until we reach heaven's shores.
