    I have some very sweet memories of Dorothy from the time I worked with her at Sei’s. She was a wonderfully kind woman to everyone. To me she gave help in learning a summer job and working my first real job. Dorothy always had a smile and a kind word. I am sad to learn of her passing and I will pray for her loved ones as you all go through this time of letting her go to her rewards. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.
