    My condolences to the Brown family. I sincerely share your loss. Dora was my dear friend. I met her in March, 1972 when I was hired at the facility where she was employed. I arrived in Tuscaloosa without a car. She took me to work for five months When she married Burt, they moved up the street from me. I was comforted by the fact that she was so close, and I could see her backing her car out of the driveway. She was always sincere, helpful and kind. I thank God for creating Dora and placing her in my life as a friend for 46 years. I miss you already my dear, sweet friend. REST IN HEAVEN.
