    I worked with Dody at Velsicol/Sandoz/BASF. She was an inspiration to me during various times of problems in my personal life and was an immense help at work. I am so sorry to hear of her passing and pray for peace for her family and friends.

    So sad to read about Dody"s passing. She was a very sweet lady, loved and respected by many. My husband, Paul, worked with her during the Velsicol/Sandoz/BASF days, and he thought she was a very special lady. I know she will be missed by family and friends, and I am sending prayers for peace and comfort.

    I have never met Dody, face to face. We always communicated by Email. Through the years that I knew her as an Epal, I became to know her as a good and close friend. Someone that, if I needed to, I could confide in.That lady had the sweetest personality that I had met up with in a long, long time. I feel blessed to have called her friend, and look forward to the day that we will finally meet when it's my turn to go home. Condolences to family and friends. She may be gone physically, but she's still here with us spiritually. It goes without saying, that Dody is sitting with the Lord at this very moment, reaping her just rewards. God bless you all in this sorrowful, yet happy, occasion.

    Praying for the family. May you have peace and comfort in knowing that this wonderful woman is standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes. "Miss Dody" was quite possibly the sweetest, kindest person I ever knew. She was a huge influence on me in my youth and on my daughter's childhood. She always had a smile and was genuinely happy to see you. There was always a sparkle in her eyes. Her light always shone bright. She always seemed innocent and untouched by the evils of the world. Miss Dody had a purity about her that caused all who know her to love her and what she stood for. I know that she will be missed greatly by her family.

    Dody was my dad's 1st cousin. I knew Dody when I was a child in Zavalla. I got to know her again as a retired senior citizen in Beaumont. From beginning to end Dody was a ray of twirling sunshine in my life. Dody had the God given ability to give love and compassion to everyone she met. I loved you back then, Dody. I love you now. Heaven has gained another angel.

    Even though she’s my cousin I always called her Aunt Dody. She always had a smile and a twinkle in her eye when I saw her. I will miss her dearly. I am sending love and hugs to all my family.

    Dody was a wonderful inspiration for me while working at Sandoz, Agro. She shared the secret to being calm in the workplace...humming a hymn! I am grateful to have been her friend. May God bless you all.
