Aunt Dortch was an amazing person. She had a beautiful smile and a huge heart! I always enjoyed spending time with her. She could always make me laugh. She was truly an angel on earth and will be greatly missed.

I used to work with Mrs. Dortch years ago when she cleaned Dr. Chitwood's office.   She was always very pleasant and nice.
