I had the opportunity to speak with Dorothy on the phone late last year and she was a very kind woman. We appreciated her faithful support here at The Salvation Army, Lancaster Corps and she helped us to help serve many people here in Lancaster County. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more about how we are serving others all year long.

God bless,

Stu Metzler,
Community Relations &
Development Director

Dear Susie, Dick, and Dave–and your families.

Please accept our deepest sympathy on Dottie’s death. She was a wonderful person. Susie, I can still remember your mother and father and my mother and father sitting in the back yard at the cottage at the Lake. They really enjoyed each other.

All three of you are a testament to having had loving and caring parents like Dottie and Earl.

I wish I could be there with you to give you all a big group hug. But consider this a big hug from a distance.

Art and Carol Webster

Susie, I have such a strong wish to sit down with my mother over a glass of wine and share thoughts of your mother’s passing…but of course I can’t. I can however think of these two very good friends together once again, looking down on their daughters and, if we’re lucky, keeping us safe. Dottie’s words to me on Jane’s death in late 2010 were thoughtful and comforting. She was a grand woman; not only my mother, but I also, was blessed by knowing her.
I send all best wishes.
