We lived across the street from the Linvilles for years, and they were absolutely wonderful neighbors. So very sorry to hear about Dorothy's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

Very sorry to hear about Aunt Dorothy, but I remember so many smiles and joy she brought with her where ever she went.One Christmas, her gift to me was two books from the Little House Series, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.She started me on the path of loving those books, and I still have them, and have read them, many times!Love to the whole family!!

As I grew up, Dorothy was like my second mom.I think I spent as much time at her home as I did at my own.She has given me so many wonderful things over the years that I cherish and for which I will be eternally grateful -- her love, her kindness, her radiant smile, her abundant patience, her unyielding faith, and. . . bless her heart, about a million glasses of cold, grape Kool Aid. But the one gift that she gave for which I will always be the most thankful is her daughter Susan, my best friend for life. Because she gave her love and kindness so freely, such a wonderful woman will certainly be missed by so very many people. She was such an inspiration, and I'm so thankful to be counted among those that were blessed to have her in our lives.It is my hope and prayer that her family is consoled by the many beautiful memories of the life she shared with them.

It has been such an honor to have known your Mother.Throughout her time in Hospice we wittnessed a very strong and a God loving family that was by her side 24/7.The family prayed for her, sang to her and listened to music with her.Yet when a guest came to visit you had a smile for all of us. We know she is where she wants to be and that alone will give you peace. May God be with all of you now and always. Loving friends, Bob and Pam
