To the Fike family, JR and Sandy, I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Fike passing she's such a pretty lady . I didn't know her but I know her brother and I know its hard giving them upl it seems a little easier if they have been suffering. Its hard to watch that too but she knew the Lord so she is going to her home not made with hands in the Heavens that Jesus has reserved for us who know Him. I pray blessings on your family and I pray God will hold you close in the days to my sis Sandy love you and JR and I pray in Christian love we will be praying for you all. God Bless

My name is Marie Jones...I first met Dorothy at the Clowns Club here in Murray since my husband and her husband were Shriners and this is part of the things they did to help children. She made me feel WELCOME since I was new to all the people and what they did.RC my husband loved being a clown and
he rode a bicycle backwards and the whole club talked about it. Dorothy was always 100 per cent in helping others. She will be missed. RIP Dot.

Prayers continuing for the family, friends, and loved ones. She was a very good friend to me for many years, especially at work. She's an icon. :) I remember numerous times she would tell me that she didn't want others to be sad, or crying, but instead wanted to have a big party of celebrating her life. Rejoice in Paradise, sweet friend.
