  1. I am so sorry to hear about Dorothea. I worked with her at the Girl Scout Office and she was so much fun to work with. She was very kind to me when I became ill and could no longer work, although I did not want to leave my doctors said I had to. I still miss it. My love and prayers go out to all of you.

You will truly be missed.
