In loving memory of Dorothy Adolph, May 14, 2012

A thousand times we needed you, A thousand times we cried.

If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died.

A heart of gold stopped beating Two twinkling eyes closed to rest

God broke our hearts to prove He only took the best.

Never a day goes by that you’re not in our hearts and thoughts.

Lovingly missed by your husband Marvin, Julie, Vickie, Sharon, Joe, and their families.
