  1. Hi! So very sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. I want to sing at her 100th birthday. My deepest sympathy. I will miss her sweet smiling face at Eastwood next time I sing there. She always loved “You Are My Sunshine,” and Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.” My prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time. Love, Marie

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing! She will always have a special spot in my heart. My dog, Mercy, and I would visit her every time we were in town. I will always cherish the time Mercy and I were able to spend with her. I know she loved Mercy and looked forward to seeing her. If she knew we were coming, she would always save a little of her food to share with Mercy. 😍 She was a sweet lady who I loved dearly. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of this sweet, beautiful lady.
