    Very, very sorry to hear. Dorothy was my favorite Aunt/Relative. She was always there for me, went above and beyond when i was growing up. She was truly a wonderful, Kind hearted soul. I am very, very grateful to of had her in my life. Best wishes to Don and the family. I was unable to pay my respects due to the fact that i was not notified of till Sat. Feb. 3rd. Through this text. You tell me if it is right to deny a blood relative the opportunity to come to a funeral? My mother and sister knew and held it from me cause they were mad at me. Just thought u should know ur Aunt Dorothy Carroll is gone. Everyone on ur Dad,s side is gone now. Died on the 29th of January & funeral in the 1st of February. I don't guess u will b man enough t apologize & mean the things u said. I'm happy the way I am. Not changing 4 anyone. We didn't know about it till the 30th. No one had contacted us.just lucky I seen it & we paid our respects. Seen the 2 grandsons & some of there kids. Each has 6 kids. Wasn't a lot of people there. Luv Mom
