Memories of Dorothy: The "cool" mom; her house was always neat; the silver bracelets; many dinners at her home; good friend to my mom; always willing to listen to my troubles; would do anything for a friend. My deepest sympathies. I will miss knowing she was always there.

I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing and I will miss her terribly! I will always remember how wonderful a friend she was to my Mom and to the rest of us "Thomas Girls" New York Street holds wonderful memories for me and Dorothy was a major part of that!
If there is anything I can do for ya'll please don't hesitate to let me know.
I will hold you in my prayers and please know that Mary and Dorothy are probably sharing a cup of coffee and a good gossip session in Heaven.
Love Katie
