Thank you Ms. Dorothy for giving me the opportunity to ride this wave with you. Thank you for all the Casting Directors wh hired Ms. Dorothy. Thank you to the world for loving on her from afar. I received calls from all over the world wanting to interview or do a Bio pic of her life. She was very selective. Per Ms. Dorothy, she told me to tell everyone that arrangements and flowers where to send will be posted via
facebook. She was still telling me what to do. That was my Ms. Dorothy.. . . .
