    Bert and I are so sorry that we could not be with you in person today to tell you how much Dorothy meant to us.. She was such a wonderful friend -- even after we left Beaumont --,, and I know that she was also a devoted mother and loving wife to your daddy and to Don We could not have been more shocked by the news of her death, but she will never be gone to us because she will always be in our hearts.
    Much love to all.

    My deepest condolences on the loss of such a wonderful lady. I met Dorothy while attendimg church at Infant Jesus. She was always very dear to me. We would always visit about her catching a ride with me to Goliad, as I was always going there and Stephanie lived there. She will truly be missed! I am not able to be there, as once again, I am in Goliad. God bless you all, and may you find comfort knowing she loved each and everyone of you!
