    Mom, we are going to miss you even more than we realize right now. We are still in that blessed fog that God gives us, but I already miss your laugh and our nightly phone calls. I love you Mom….

  2. We miss Granny Dorothy tremendously and we have many wonderful memories of her. The last several years we didn’t get to see her but we cherished our phone conversations. She had a delightful sense of humor ( can still hear her wonderful laugh) and a heart as big as Texas. Just thinking of her brings a smile.
    Our hearts go out to her family, most especially Gary and Carole. She was so proud of you and loved you very much. She was a lady through and through and will forever be in our hearts.
    We send you all our love.
    Larry, Nicole, Breezy and Danielle Rodgers
