One of the kindest women I have every met died a week ago. The memorial for Dorothy Fleming was held at our church today. When the kids and I joined St. Andrew's four and a half years ago, Dorothy introduced herself and welcomed us to the church. Every Sunday, she'd make a point of greeting us before or after the service, and checking in with us at coffee time. She made sure that we felt at home at St. Andrew's. Later I found out that Dorothy did the same for every newcomer and everyone who might be lonely or isolated. With her own tender care she brought us all into the fold. Dorothy, your church home is missing you today.
