To Dorothy my special friend who looked after my Alfie with care and affection. Always brought him presents and treats and took him for walks in the woods. Dorothy's love of four legged friends was legendary.x

My lovely dear friend Dorothy. We laughed at silly things and our funny texts had me giggling but you were always there for me when I needed a friend. You were such a good friend to my Dad too, he thought the world of you too. As did Keith, he keeps his Sunderland dinosaur on his table, how we laughed when you rang me to ask if he'd think it was a silly present lol. He treasures it. I'm going to miss you so much my precious friend. I loved popping in for coffee and chatting and seeing the cats. I know you're at peace noe, Heaven has a brand new beautiful angel. Love you so much Dorothy. Xxxx

My lovely friend Dorothy was caring, kind, funny, fearless and loving towards everyone wether they had two legs or four. Her smile brightened up the room and I was honoured to be her colleague initially and then her friend. God bless you Dorothy xxx
