Sharon Putman, March 13, 2016 Dorothy was a wonderful & very dear cousin . She kept my girls for me when they were very young little girls, I trusted her completely with their welfare. She was a person you could always count on. As the years went by, we grew apart some & moved to different cities, but she was always at our family re-unions or gatherings & I Ioved her very much. She will be missed terribly but I know she is at rest in another Heavenly Home. melba blevins, March 13, 2016
