    Dorothy was a wonderful friend to our family. She grew up with my Mother in Coffeyville, KS and they both attended KU together and were members of Chi Omega sorority. I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to Judy. Judy, she was just the best! You were so lucky to have had her for a mother for so long. Blessings to you and your family.
