Dorothy was an inspiration who all knew her on facebook.We had a few talks and she always made me smile.Fly with the angels dear dorothy.
Janet (Roy) Charlebois:
My dear mother I have only lost you in life. This is Not Goodbye, but only Till We Meet Again. It was so very hard to loose you that day the Lord took you by the hand & gave you your wings to fly 'free' from your pain & suffering you so endured.
Roy too will so miss your joking around with each other;
{he, as you called him - the 'old rooster & you, as he called you - the 'old crow'}.
I shall always admire your strength no matter how much you suffered in pain; your giddy up & go to bake & sell at farmer's markets & go camping. My mother; in my heart you shall always remain.
"When flying by my way, do so drop in for a visit if by only a butterfly".
