    Just read of Mrs. Dorton’s passing. Just wanted to say momma loved your mother and daddy loved your dad and they (daddy and your dad) enjoyed a lot of time riding around together. (Many years ago) My thoughts and prayers are with you but can see she’s one that you can celebrate her presence with The Father.

    Grandma Dorton, the kids and I will miss you very much. I always wished I could have spent more time with you and seen you more often than I did. Some of my best kid memories were at your old house and visiting with all the family there. Love you always grandma and be peaceful now. Love Cheryl, Bethany, Greyson.

    Aunt Ernie, you were the most amazing woman and you had so many people that loved you! You were an angel on earth and you will be missed! You’ve gone home to be with your family now! The family left behind will be comforted to know that you will meet us at heaven’s gate! We love you! Love Amy, Amber, Addison and Riley Dorton Langford <3
