Dorothy was an awesome lady. I may have been your supervisor but most important we were friends! We shared some great adventures and laughs. I was privileged to drive her route for about 2 months in the winter if 2015. We had some stories driving in the snow, getting stuck and dragging a street cone down the road. Dorothy what a beautiful women of God you were. So glad we also shared our faith in God.
