Dorothy saved everything and anything that could be stored in a file folder or a box. Bank records, old passports, histories, letters, cards, and pictures—she kept it all. Over time, much of it has lost its meaning. Really, who saves canceled checks going back 40 years?
Certain items were especially important to Dorothy, including cards and letters containing stories, memories, and expressions of love. She kept virtually every piece of paper ever sent to her. Eight examples out of hundreds, which are typical, are presented below (click to enlarge). The message is consistent: Dorothy’s life is an example of selfless devotion to family, friends, and Church, which she loved with all her heart. She touched the lives of hundreds of people. When her time comes, she will be greatly missed by all who truly know her.
