Robert and Paul I was sorry to hear about Aunt Dorothy. I was thankful I did get to stop by the nursing home last year and see her. She thought I was Bonnie at first and then realized who I was. My son, Troy and also Bonnie had also stopped to see her another time. I'll always remember how I could go to her when I had a problem. She would always take the time to listen. My husband, Ken, Troy and Bonnie will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Love Carol

Bob, Paul and families:  I was shocked and saddened today when I read your mother's obituary in the Sentinel.  Almost every time as I drive through Plainfield and past your old home, I wonder how your mother is doing.  I'm sorry for your loss.  Oh yeah, Go Yankees!

Dear Family, I am so very sorry for your loss.  Dot was surely one of a kind. I grew up in Plainfield, and was lucky enough to have this dear lady as a wonderful neighbor and close family friend.  I remember going to her house after Christmas Eve service and having Dot's famous pinkies. Or sitting out in their backyard with my family and other neighborhood families spending time with her and Stoney.  She had a heart of gold and will be missed dearly.  My mom would visit her at the home with Marie Hampton (God rest her soul) and they both said how much Dot enjoyed the nursing home.  I am sure she brought much light to all around her.  In the midst of your grief and loss know that she is in a splendid place with her Lord and Savior...and she is resting happy. In Christ's love, Jane (Welker) Jardine
