    To Family and Friends:
    Sorry we were unable to make the Celebration of Life Ceremony due to the inclement weather. Dorothy was a dear friend who we met in Mesa, Arizona 20 years ago. We will remember her with much affection and expect St. Peter will have a spot for her at the Bingo Table when she arrives.
