I shared an hour of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament with Dorothy many years ago. Her kindness, joy and loving persona were such an inspiration to me. Even in deep prayer, she would have a smile on her face. She loved God, her parish and especially her Family. May God rest her soul and comfort all who loved her.

Martha and Tom, it is with heartfelt sadness that I learn of Dorothy's passing. The Drabek family always made me feel like I belonged. I'm unable to be there physically but I will be there in prayer. May God comfort you all during this difficult time. Love to all.........Connie
