    I bowed my head in prayer today for a sister I loved so dearly, but then I had to smile because I know she is in heaven with her Joe, Jimmy and Stevie and telling them about the beautiful family they left behind. I know you will miss her, but may the Lord touch your hearts knowing that she is no longer in pain. God Bless you all. Aunt Grace

    Dorothy “Mom” Slattery was very special and she will be missed by so very many. I will always regret not going to visit her more often. She simply oozed such love and caring to all of those around her. I loved her dearly and will miss her. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for every family member to say goodbye to her, but knowing she is at peace and in the Lord’s arms is comforting. God bless all of you.

    Dorothy was a very special person who made a positive impact on me as I was growing up. She was always smiling and had such a positive attitude. Her family and all who knew her will never forget this wonderful lady. My deepest sympathy to her family.
