Dorothy was truly an angel on earth & is now with our risen Lord and Savior. She would always give you a smile and words of encouragement. She was a hard worker & always helped butcher the best tasting chickens. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Bogus family. :pray::heart:

Oh my gosh! What a shock when we heard she passed! Our deepest sympathy and prayers. We will miss her so much as she usually sat in front of us or same row in church. Her special kindness will not be forgotten. May she rest in peace as she joins your dad and their 2 white roses.

My very deepest sympathy to all of Dorothy's family, she was a wonderful loving and caring lady, she will be very missed by everyone who knew her. A heart of gold, always a smile for everyone. God received another wonderful angel to watch over us, she will be smiling down on all of her family and friends and will be up there with Dave and a lot of family. Cherish all your fun and wonderful memories, which I am sure there are many they do help some. Was definitely not ready to say good by to Dorothy but she passed the way we would all like to go when our time. Prayers and hugs to all of her beautiful family. In Christ Velda
