  1. Aunty Dorothy was a constant integral part of my life. From an early age I remember receiving birthday cards and christmas cards written especially for me! As the years have passed it has always continued to be this way. A letter from Aunty Dorothy was always in the post to keep in touch and give updates on the extended family events. What a treasure she was to all of us. We have been so blessed to have had this wonderful lady in our lives. Although I am not present on this day when we celebrate the amazing life that she has lived I am grateful to have had the opportunity to visit with her in her final days to tell her once more how special she has been throughout my life, to hold her hand and tell her how much she is loved always. May my beautiful aunt rest in peace with her lord.
