  4. To Dorothy’s children and their families: Nancy and were so sad to hear of your Mom passing away. She was a wonderful person and friend. We will never forget her compassion and understanding for all those she came in contact with. She was an outstanding example to all she touched. We will remember her always.

  5. I only know Randy but I send my deepest condolences to all of you. Randy, do you remember when you and David went with me to Missouri? LOOOONG time ago but
    I still remember it and when you and David came to Canyon Lake. You were like
    another nephew to me and I let the years pass too fast. Both your parents were so
    nice to me and I appreciated both of them. Don’t know if you remember Ron, but
    he caught the wings of an angel three years ago and went to Heaven. These are
    hard times, but with the help of friends and family, they will help you. Shirley
    Peikert called me. Thanks for being such a good friend to my family in Dickinson.

  6. I hadn’t been teaching very long when Dorothy came to McAdams. She and I worked so well together because she was absolutely tireless. After she became Mr. Morgan’s secretary, I admired her even more. What a wonderful lady!
