I met Dorothy through working at Edward Jones. She was such a kind person. Loved having her and Orville come to our annual Christmas party.

To Dorothy's Family -- Sincerest sympathy on the loss of Dorothy. She and Mom were always such good friends . . . high school together, writing letters while being miles apart on their farms, the New Year's Eves spent playing games, always relying on their friendship. We know how much you will miss her; remember the good times to keep her alive in your hearts. Carolyn (Kessinger) and Jim Pickett

To Dorothy's Family -- Sincerest sympathy on the loss of Dorothy. She and Mom were such good friends for so many years . . . together in high school, writing letters while living miles apart on the farms, playing games those many New Year's Eves, always relying on their friendship. Hold on to the good memories to keep her alive in your hearts. Carolyn (Kessinger) and Jim Pickett

So sorry to hear about Aunt Dot's passing. She will certainly be missed. Fond memories of going to the farm and gathering fresh eggs with her for baking and eating. She always stayed busy. Condolences to Uncle Orville and the whole family.
