Dorothy was our friend, and we enjoyed many evenings with her. We enjoyed attending church with her at Erwin Hills Baptist where she was a member.
Dorothy was a super lady, always had a smile. She was a strong lady and over came many obstacles in her later years. Her seat where she sat in church is now empty to all of us. We Love you Dorothy.
Dorothy I am going to miss you, we had so many good times at Erwin Hills Baptist Church. Everyone missed you when you were not able to come anymore. It was an enjoyable time on your last visit as we sat, talked and laughed. You were a good friend and I love you.
Thank you for your gracious hospitably and loving friendship we found at Erwin Hills Baptist Church. We thank God our paths crossed here on earth and will see you in eternity.
I thank God for the friendship we had with you at Erwin Hills Baptist Church. You always wore a smile that was uplifting for everyone. God has visited His flower garden and picked you to spend eternity with Him. While you will be missed, the memory of you will continue to be with us.
Dorothy, you were my dear close friend. We were together a lot when I was in Asheville. My memory goes back when we would be at church on Sunday, you would go home with me for dinner and we would have the afternoon fellowship together. I’m sorry I can not be there when the family receives friends, but we will meet again in Heaven. I love you very much.
Dear Charlie and Shelly , we were so sorry to hear that your grandmother had passed away……We were unable to come to the funeral home as we had 12 people here for dinner last night but just wanted you to know that we were thinking about you…………and that our our prayers are with your entire family……………………………….
We have lost a wonderful caring lady and she will be missed. My mother (Ruth Owen) will miss here greatly also. We loved Dorothy and her family will be in our prayers.
