Expression of Sympathy Jan 26 2018 12:00 AM

I want to extend my sympathies to Roy, their sons, and extended family. Dorothy was a great wife, mother, mother in law, and grandmother. Always a kind word and very compassionate. Unfortunately, I am recovering from back surgery and may not be able to extend my sympathies in person, which I apologize. May she rest in peace after a courageous battle with cancer.
Our prayers are with her beautiful family. She will be missed.
