    "Dorothy and Joe were my neighbors on Washington Street in Cadillac. Dorothy was a special and good woman. She was a gift to all who knew her and she graced many lives. I am most grateful she was my neighbor. May Almighty God welcome her home, embrace her and say to her; “Dorothy you were always special to me. Your life was a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.” Amen. Fr. Pat Cawley"
