Dorothy J. Hooper
You were not here by chance,
Only by God’s choosing.
His hand formed you and
Made you the person you were.
He compared you to
No one else...
You were one of a kind.
You never lacked nothing
That His grace couldn’t give you.
He allowed you to
Be here at this time in History
To fulfill His Special Purpose
For this Generation.

Your children, grandchildren, family and friends were all touched by your love, your faith and your life.
We are all better people for having watched your Godly example and walked with you this side of Heaven.
Our dear Mother, Grandmother, (Nanny) and Friend will be missed greatly. May we who follow after her, live by her example and walk in her faith which was in Jesus Christ.
“Her children rise up and call her blessed...”
— Proverbs 31:28
