My deepest sympathy to Jim and the rest of Dolly's family. I loved working with her at the hospital and shared many QVC stories along the way! Dolly had the most infectious smile and shared it with just about everybody. I am happy I had the chance to know her.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. It is never easy to lose someone we love. Jesus said in John 5:28 "the hour is coming in which all those in the graves will hear my voice and come out."
