Must be a God thing. I was peeling potatoes and thinking about my dear, dear friend Dorothy. She taught me lots about life, animals, gardening. Such a giving women. I feel so blessed to have known Dorothy. Praying that the sweet Lord Jesus comforts you and bring you joy in the good memories.

Today I learned my dear friend Dorothy passed on from this world. Though miles apart, Dorothy never left my heart. Always so kind to help others in time of need. She taught me about life and the value of hard work. Dorothy was a great inspiration and passed in the live of gardening. Teacher. Mentor. Friend. It brings comfort to know she was well cared for in her last years. It is my great hope to meet Dorothy again in heaven.
