My prayers and love for the whole family. I had the wonderful pleasure of calling Dorothy my friend. We worked together at Hoodview and our little side jobs after. We lost touch with each other after I moved to Humble, but will never forget her and family.
Charleene Morgan, February 7, 2020 To Ricardo, Michelle, and the Barga family, our sincere condolences on the passing of your wife and mother. May God bless you and provide the strength for all of you during this time. Know that we are all praying for you and keeping you in our thoughts. May God and His heavenly angels be your inspiration to guide you today and tomorrow. With many regards and sympathies. From all of the Montoya families in Seguin and San Antonio!! Rene and Maria Montoya, San Antonio, TX, February 6, 2020 Dorothy, Thank you for so many wonderful times you and Jim happily welcomed me and lots of the Ellison teens, into your home. The incredible kindness and patient understanding you provided as we went to you to secure our first car loans as teens were celebrated by you as much as we did. Then, upon my graduation from SWTSU, you provided the diamond that serves as its center for my class ring. I pray that you are embraced in the arms of our dear Mother Mary as a parent holds her child and that you, are comfortablly at rest having realized a life helping others. Our entire Marquez family is eternally grateful for your friendship and all that you did. Marquez family. Joey Marquez and Family, February 5, 2020
