Borden, Dorothy E.'s Guestbook

I enjoyed Dorothy's pleasant and positive attitude when I would go to Addington and help Pastor Jack with church services on Sunday afternoon. I can see the twinkle in her eyes as she smiled, patted my hand gently, and greeted me with, "It's so good to see you, Sweetie." Dorothy, you were a sweetie, and I'm grateful my path crossed with yours. The following quote by Bonnie Rickner Jensen seems fitting for Dorothy, "Those who have brought us joy, made us laugh, and shown us love have given us the lasting gifts of a beautiful life and blessed our memories forever."
