    We loved Dorothy! My parents were in the Tabor Manor and so was Dorothy several years ago. My Mom and Dorothy became friends and frequently visited each other. It was difficult for them to talk because my Mom spoke so softly and Dorothy had difficulty hearing! They would just sit and smile at each other…..it was so sweet!

    Our Hearts and Prayers are always with the Stouder Family, as Dear Dorothy is now walking with the Good Lord in the Garden of Heaven.
