She had a Grace about her that was unparalleled and knew more about her work than I will ever know!! I am so very proud to have known and worked with her all these years. See you in the morning, Dorothy!

To the Hines family, I worked many years with Dorothy and she was a blessing in some way big or small to all of us. She carried many roles in this world and will be dearly missed. We where often referred to as the twins because people would get us confused. So when Dorothy and I would pass each other we would say "hey twin" and smile. Remember she is in God's hands now
