Dorothy's love of her family, her community, and her Lord were ever present in the way she lived her life. Craft projects that she created alone, or with the help of her beloved husband, were always precise and well done. My favorites are the four wooden hand painted church buildings, representing the meetinghouses in New London down through the years. The hand stitched cross bookmarks she made in pastel colors are good reminders for us all that God's love is ever with us, even unto the end of our days here on earth. May each and every one of you, in all generations, feel His Presence with you as you celebrate a life well lived!!

Dear Sue,

I'm thinking about you and praying for you. I'm so thankful you and your sisters were able to be with your mom at the end. That's such a blessing. I know how much time and energy you gave to helping your mom all these years, and I imagine she felt cared for by your unselfish love. I'm so glad you have lots of family to share in the responsibilities this weekend, and I hope the planning and service and visitation go smoothly. I pray for you for emotional, physical, and relational strength. I hope all three of your children and as many of the grandchildren as possible will be able to join you. Lots of love to you and Mike.

Bev and Jerry

Dear folks, I was greatly saddened to learn of Dorothy's death. I have very fond memories of the Ashcraft family spanning over 70 years, and I always considered myself almost a part of your family. Like all of you, Dorothy was always a kind and gentle person and will be greatly missed by all of you. Unfortunately I will be unable to be with you this weekend, but my thoughts are with you.
