Kohler, Dorothy I.'s Guestbook

Aunt Dorothy was a wonderful, sweet, caring woman. My mom, Mona Johnson was her sister and my moms best friend. She will truly be missed by all that knew her and loved her. But we know that she is in the Kingdom of God and has been given a new body, free of pain, as Jesus promised us.

What a beautiful friend! We had many good times together. Loved having her in our meeting. She was fun to travel with. We took several trips by car & 1 by rail. On one trip she asked jokingly, “Are we there yet”? Yes Dorothy you have made it there! ♥️💐. We will miss you our friend!
