Deepest sympathy, love, prayers and comfort to all of Dorothy’s family. I have so many happy memories spending time with all at cousin gatherings or at the Headley Columbus homes, Dorothy’s Fort Myers home, and her apartment in Waverly. When I was new to Columbus, she invited me to spend holidays with them if I could not be back with my home county family. Dorothy was such a kind, caring Christian person. She will be deeply missed, but we know she is at peace and all can join her again. Love and hugs from Carolyn.
