Dear Brian, Andi, and family,
We were very sorry to hear about Dorothy's passing. I would run into Dorothy here and there and always enjoyed talking with her. She was always kind. I will always remember her playing cards with the girls at the club. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Dorothy and Larry were long time great friends dating back to when the two older boys were babies in Cedar Rapids.We never lost touch. They were beautiful, strong, hardworking and hard playing and we loved them deeply. May they rest in the Peace of the Lord.
