I have so many wonderful memories of Dorothy. She helped make my transition when I moved to Burley a lot easier. Working with her as a substitute aide on the school bus was always fun and I looked forward to the days I would have the chance to work with her. I didn't even mind getting up that early. She is a sweet lady with a special soul and I know she was greeted by many loved ones. It's so wonderful to know that her children and especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren now have another beautiful guardian angel watching over them. Love to all.
