I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when the Hoehn's had their family reunion, Dorothy always mentioned to me how much she cared for my mother, Cleta. Her saying this meant a lot to me.

I went to mass a few times last year with my husband and enjoyed talking to Dorothy. She had a beautiful spirit and loved her family.
Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her.
