Time is not measured by the years that you live But by the deeds that you do and the joy that you give- And each day as it comes brings a chance to each one To love to the fullest, leaving nothing undone That would brighten the life or lighten the load Of some weary traveler lost on Life’s Road- So what does it matter how long we may live If as long as we live we unselfishly give. ― Helen Steiner Rice In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Dorothy’s honor to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, or https://www.stjude.org/donate/donate-to-st-jude.html Funeral services will be private.
