  1. Dorothy will be missed, she was a great lady. I would hope I can look as young as she does when I get older. Beautiful lady!
    She was my land lady for 4 years but more like a friend than a landlord!

    Thoughts and prayers go out to Mark and the rest of the family..

  2. Thanks for allowing us to provide care for Dorothy. I wish we could have gotten to know her better. She has a wonderful family! Thank you for sharing her with us.

  3. Doling Family,

    You have my sincerest condolences for your loss.“While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.” – John 5:28, 29
