    So sorry to see that you have lost your mother/grandmother. What a quiet and peaceful lady…and I do mean LADY. She was very sweet, demure and endearing. Her sparkling eyes always warmed my heart. You will have many wonderful memories as your heritage. My prayers are with you and yours at this time. Much Love, Ellen

  3. David and Laurel:

    I met Dorothy with Warren at several corporate functions during our time together at Imperial Oil Research.

    Your parents epitomized dignity and fair mindedness all the time and at all levels.

    I know such fine qualities are not lost as future generation unfold.

    With kindness and respect…….

  4. Dear David and Laurel

    My sincere condolences to you and family. It has been a long road and not an easy one.
    I have so many wonderful memories of our friendship in high school and later in our married lives.
    Dorothy was a very special person.I know the last few years have been very hard for you but time has a way of blotting out the troublesome times.
    She will be missed but soon you will have much happier memories.
    God Bless
