Talking Point Notes for Delivering Extemporaneous Eulogy 

•    FROM A FAMILY WHO ALL DO GOOD THINGS FOR HUMANKIND
•    LOVE OF LIFE
•    MANY INTERESTS
•    LONG HISTORY SERVICE AND ACTIVISM FOR PEOPLE OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE
•    HONORED TO KNOW: INSPIRATIONAL
•    WORDS TO DESCRIBE: COMPASSIONATE -- CARING  -- KIND
•    INJUSTICES ANGERED HER, TO ACTION


•    EXPECTED THE BEST, HAD THE AUDACITY TO EXPECT RESPONSIBILITY AND HUMANITY FROM POLITICIANS….GIVE THEM THE INFORMATION TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS, AND WHEN THEY DON’T,

        DOROTHY WOULD LIGHT ‘EM UP
        THEY WOULD GET HER OPINION
        OFTEN IN THE FORM OF A LETTER TO THE EDITOR

•    HONEST – FIERCELY HONEST
•    COURAGEOUS –FEARLESS – TENACIOUS – PERSISTENT-
        ADVOCATED FOR TREATMENT OF ADDICTS
        FUNDING FOR SEX OFFENDERS – TO PROTECT VICTIMS

•    INTEGRITY
•    HONORABLE
•    PATRIOTIC – LOVED AMERICA, NOT BLINDLY BUT CARINGLY
        ENOUGH TO QUESTION IT….
        TO ORDER THE STATE AND FEDERAL BUDGETS TO DO RIGHT BY  
        PEOPLE OF LESSER MEANS….

•    NOBLE AND DIGNIFIED
•    CHAMPION – RIGHT TO THE END—
        WHEN TOLD WE GOT A DETOX IN THE COUNTY—
        WE WANT A DETOX HERE IN ALLENTOWN
        NOT IN LENHARTSVILLE


•    TRUSTED - LOYAL FRIEND – BELOVED BY ALL


•    IN NEW SMITHSVILLE – 3 BLACK SHEEP AND ONE WHITE SHEEP –
        WHO IS THE BLACK SHEEP….

•    KNEW HERSELF AND LIVED A PRINCIPLED LIFE,
        ABLE TO REMAIN TRUE TO HERSELF

•    SHE HAD A STRONG SPIRIT AND A SOFT HEART AND A BIG HEART

•    AS OLDER – SHE’D SAY SHE WAS SHRINKING
        BUT EVERYONE KNEW SHE ALWAYS STOOD TALL

•    INSPIRATIONAL – A ROLE MODEL—TO THE END .…
•    GIVEN THE CHOICE OF SPEAKING UP OR NOT SPEAKING UP,
        SPEAK UP
        ALWAYS SPEAK UP …
        YOUNG GIRLS, AND ALL PEOPLE COULD FOLLOW HER LEAD

•    IT’S WHAT MAKES HER EXTRAORDINARY – ONE OF A KIND

•    SO IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT I EXPRESS THIS GRATITUDE TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF HER LIFE …

•    GOOD BYE DOROTHY,

•    YOU WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED AND REMEMBERED
