    I love Dorthy so much!! She will be sorely missed. We were in the same ward and in DUP together. She unselfishly agreed a couple of months ago to crochet birthday gifts for all of the DUP daughters in our camp. They are so beautiful!! She was definitely blessed with a gift of handwork, but also of service. We are glad for her to be free of all of her health problems, but so sad for those of us who have been left here without her.

    May the Spirit of peace fill all of our hearts.

    Dorthy was such a dear soul with a caring spirit, she was always willing to be of service, she will be missed so much in our DUP camp, her friendly smile and willingness to serve. May all of her family be comforted at this time.
