  3. She was the light in the darkest hours of my days. I admired how she spoke her opinion no matter what people thought, even if it involved putting it some swear words. That was Dolly. When I asked her how she was, her reply was still kickin’. She always told me to not to get into too much trouble now, and to think good of others and to focus on the positive. I am glad I got to know her before she passed.
