  1. I will always
    remember Dorothy and her sister, Arlene, who took care of me when I first came to Wirt Stone Dock to work. They were so nice to me and took care of me and help me learn the job .I will surely miss Dorothy. My deepest sympathies to her family.

  2. I was so sad to hear from Karen on Saturday of Dorothy’s passing. She was a very sweet cousin who will be missed by her family and her extended family. Her smile was infectious and showed her caring for everyone. I am sorry I won’t be back in Michigan at this time to attend her ceremony, but please know you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
