    Bill Words cannot express how much You, and Your Mom and Dad have ment to us. Aunt Dottie was a very special person in our lives, and we will deeply miss her. Jesus said this in John’s Gospel. Joh 14:1 ¶ Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    Bill, Cheryl and I were deeply saddened to hear of your Mother’s passing. We know how close you two were, and how much she meant to you. I can remember many times while visiting you, how she would make us laugh with her quick sense of humor. She always remembered my name, no matter how long it was since she had last seen or talked to me. Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss.

    Bill, so sorry to hear about your mom. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen you or her, but have thought about you from time to time. She was a wonderful person; she always had a smile. My deepest sympathy.

    Bill, So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother and my Godmother. I knew something was wrong when I didn’t receive a Christmas card or Birthday Card, she always sent one. She was a special Godmother. I still have a doll she gave me when I had my tonsils out at age 4. I have call her ‘my Dorothy doll’. My thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Karen Eyman

    We live in Cincinati and my daughter Mary Woods who lives in Victor just called to tell me of Dorothy’s passing. She is certainly with God in paradise. Dorothy is my first cousin . I am Ed Fromm’s daughter. We first became close when my husband jack was selling hospital supplies & she was caring for her husband Bill. We have kept in touch even if it was only by Christmas cards. She always had a beautiful handwriting & a beautiful personality. She was so happty to have such a caring son , Bill to see her through the last years. She always kept me informed about her sister Delores to whom with Bill I offer my deepest sympathy. I will have a MMmass said for her in my church in Cincinnati and I send my deepest respect for a women who took her duties as a wife to the limits of care. God bless her & may you all receive God’s peace for your care of such a great cousin. Pat Fromm Reardon
