As I grew older, Dorothy's daughter and I would occasionally pause in our preteen and teenaged-angst to have a snack and chat with Dorothy. I remember writing down a particularly important thing she said to me - that it is okay to question God as long as you keep looking for the answer.
Another vivid memory I have of Dorothy is one I share with those who ask what I think of being a pastor's wife. I was worried about this myself before I married Phil. When Dorothy found out about my fear of the position she said "Oh Sam, it's just like being a lawyer's wife or an electrician's wife. When someone calls, just be polite and take a message." Excellent advice!
Thank you Dorothy for loving me and my family. Thanks for all the advice, recipes and laughter-filled memories. We miss you.
