Dorothy,

You were a gifted and creative soul. I am so incredibly sorry for your suffering and for the loss of your presence in this world.

I pray that you are at peace and dwelling now in a greater happiness, surrounded by nothing but love.

I love you. I know you believed candles protected you, and that fusia was the symbol for you psychic abilities- so I thought this one was fitting. I miss you dearly, big sis. Forever. But I know you struggled daily, and believe you are at peace. Hugs and kisses, Big D. You have no idea how much you still mean to me. Love love. Xoxoxoxo.

I love you Dorothy. I miss you everyday. You are one of my best friends, and I wish I could tell you so many things. I still wish I could call you. I know you were confused, and wish I could have been there for you, like you were for me. When I had nowhere to go, you took me in. You loved me, and I loved you. I always will. You will always be my big sister, and will

I had the pleasure of teaching Dorothy when she was in first grade at St. Matthew the Apostle School. She always had a huge smile on her face and was a pleasure to work with each day.

Years later, when in high school, she gave her freshmen picture to my daughter, also a student at Chapelle, to give to me. That meant the world to me!

She will be missed by all!

My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

I knew Dorothy for a short time during the summer of 2011, where she and I prepared the Litha Solstice Celebration in June for the Lamplight Circle. She had a way of lighting up the room with her personality. I'll never forget her passion for life during Litha and when she thanked nature for the sunshine blessing our event, it began to rain. She laughed, shrugged her shoulders and continued her sermon, stating that she meant no offense to the
