  • My thoughts and Prayers go out to Dick and David and Family as you all go through this time of loss. I will miss the great conversations we had reminiscing the past. Dorothy has given me great stories to share with my family as I grow older. I will always be fond of the times that I had to spend with Dorothy, she was truly a child of God. I look forward to when we meet up in Heaven; Meeting up with Grandma Clary, Mike, & my Dad, all getting together playing their instruments and playing down home great music. While we are saddened by her loss, we should also rejoice as her family in Heaven have their sister back home.

  • My deepest sympathy to the Miller family. I always remember the visits from Dick and Dorothy at grandma and grandpa Clary’s house and then in later years they would make the journey to visit mom and dad. I always thought how great it was for them to take the time to still visit family in these times when family’s are so busy. Dorothy will be missed by many but she is in god’s hands now singing with the angels.

  • My heart was saddened to hear the news of Dorothy’s passing. My thoughts are with the Miller family. I remember how Dick & Dorothy would spend the night @ Grandma Clarys house just so they could visit all the relatives down in the old homestead area. I remember hearing Grandma Clary & Dorothy play the guitars & singing “I’ll Fly Away”. That’s how I shall remember her…a smile on her face & singing. I hope that one day I get to hear those 2 ladies sing to me again. In a beautiful place with beautiful people. Until then, I hope all hearts heal with great stories about Dorothy, her family & her extended family.

  • I have wonderful memories of Dorothy. We had so much fun sewing together.
    You were great neighbors when we lived across the street from you. Dorothy will be missed by all of us! Marty sends his sympathies as well. He and David were such good friends.

  • David & Dick, I’m so sorry for your loss. I think I spent more time at your house than I did at mine when we lived across from you on South Boston Street. Dorothy was always so kind and welcoming. I’ll never forget the times she made lunch for us on the breezeway and served it with love (and freshly picked tomatoes from your garden.) I will always cherish those memories.
