During the pandemic, the deacons at our church asked for people to sign up to be penpals for some of the residents at Savannah Grand. I wrote to Dorothy. Although I never met her, I had many conversations with her in my mind, as I sent her cards and magazines. I see now how much she was love and will be missed. I will miss her, too.

Ms. Dorothy was a beautiful person. I am so glad to have met her. Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of such a lovely lady. She will be missed.

Ms Dorothy was a kind, sweet (& sometimes feisty) soul who made the best of every day the Lord gave her, with such challenging limitations. I will miss our visits😔
