My deepest sympathy to Dorothy's family. She was a sweet, kind and giving spirit. I met Dorothy through our Neighborhood Assoc. She demonstrated her support and concern for our community in a number of ways. But it was her Red Beans & Rice contribution to our Night Out Against Crime that helped make it a success......it brought people back each year looking for more. She was a true blessing. My prayers are with the family. May the Lord strengthen and comfort you in your loss.
