dorothy was my best friend and neighbor. she said i was one of the funniest friends i ever had. we enjoyed a lot ofscrabble games together and i would always trim her bush on the side of herhouse and once in a while i would cut her grass. i can remember when i dropped my air conditioner out of the upstairs window down to the ground i ran to her house and said dorothy look at my air conditioner i am sure glad you were not under it we both laughed hysterically. i moved away from her 6 years ago but always came there to see her. we still communicated on the phone. i will truly miss my best friend i have traveled 183 miles to attend the funeral i was so glad that i had seen her a week before she passed on. i would like to send flowers that look like a scrabble board. dorothy will always be in my heart for the rest of my life

Dear Tommy, Your mom was one of the nicest people that I have ever met. When you and Bill were in school togeather, your mom and I use to talk on the phone all the time. Even though its been years since I have seen her, I will always remember her sweetness. I feel so bad for you. She must have been a wonderful mother and you will miss her so much.
