    There are no words to express just how much I will miss my Mom. There was no other who compared to her. She was selfless, and totally devoted to her Savior, and loved her family more than words can say. She was my Rock, my Hero, and my very Best Friend. I'll see you in Heaven Mom.❤

    Sometimes the smallest moments can create the longest memories. In the 90's Jen and I visited Dorothy and Ted at a flea market they were selling at. She took us into their RV and made us sandwiches and just sat and talked. I still remember her smile and kindness that day. Such a simple moment but the memory has never left me nor will it. What a great spirit she was.

    I am going to miss my mom so much. She was the best mom anyone could ask for. She was such a caring person and a true Christian and servant of the Lord. I would go see her daily at the Arboretum and she would always want to play skip-bo. I know she is walking the streets of heaven and talking with our Savior. I'm sure she not only had a wonderful welcome from her Heavenly Father, but she also had a great welcome from family who had gone before her. She is at peace now.
