Dear Debbie and all of Dolly’s family, Although we didn’t know your mom well (she was a friend of a friend of ours), we remember her as a very sweet, kind, gentle lady - in the most positive way, a “true lady,” and we know that she was truly loved and respected and that she will be sorely missed by many close friends, neighbors, Craft Club-ers, &, of course, family. Our hearts go out to you, Linda & Mike Flanagan

Dolly was such a beautiful, loving woman. I spent many days at the Smith house while growing up with Debbie. She was always so welcoming, warm and caring. Love and prayers to you and may God bless all of you during this very difficult time.
