To the entire Robey-Hines family,

Dorsey was a very dear friend who will be deeply missed by all of us here at Rivebend.

You were all so very special to her, and she loved you all so very much, always boasting about her wonderful family and how good you were to her! We loved looking at those wonderful pictures on her walls of her large, beautiful family and meeting you all at her last big birthday party!!

She was strong and courageous, and was determined to live life to the fullest. A day or evening spent with Dorsey was always a fun time. We have so many happy memories of good times spent together, and hope that all of these cherished memories will help sustain all of you during this sorrowful time.

God bless Dorsey and her entire extended family.. May she Rest in Peace!
Our deepest sympathy to you all.

Aunt Dorsey was such an inspiration to us all. She was always so full of life. She was a beautiful woman with an amazing family who she loved so dearly. Several years ago, when my Mom (Marie Keegan) and I went to Fort Myers to visit Aunt Florence and Aunt Dorsey they shared their memories of my Dad(Thomas Keegan) and it meant so much to me. When I asked Aunt Dorsey about all of her children, she had a big beautiful smile and was glowing with love as she talked about each one. My sincere condolences to all of Dorsey's family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

So sorry to get the news of your Mother's passing away on May 8, 2011! My Mother, MiMi, passed away on the same day 25 years ago in 1986. She was 77. Paul Buckley called and left a message this morning! I know you are going to miss her but I'm sure you have many Happy memories of earlier days, and this will get you thru these sad times! Wish I could be there with you but know I will be there in my thoughts. My prayers are with you and all your family.
Sincerely, Winston, Chazbubba!

Dear Cousins and all,
I am thinking of Aunt Dorsey and all her beautiful children. I remember when Gram Keegan would make the rounds to visit our family with her caramels and fudge and she would talk about the Hines family with great pride. Dorsey was clearly a great mom. I think of her as full of fun and so able to enjoy life plus get the important things done. On the 11th my sister Kathy and I will be headed to Florida to visit our mom, Marie. We will surely be thinking of you all and sharing our memories of Dorsey.
Lots of love,

Bill Sullivan Jr

The Sullivan family extends their deepest sympathies to the Hines and Robey families on Dorsey's passing. She touched all of our lives and our Mom and Dad consider her one of the best friends they have ever had. Cohasset, Plymouth, or Florida - they always found a way to share good times and our folks will always treasure those memories.
Sincerely, Bill Jr. (on behalf of Bill Sr., Joan, Dave, Jim, Paul and Scott)
