“Be extraordinary!” – Dorothy Jean Carroll Andrews
We celebrate the life of my older-sister by 2 years this morning at a funeral in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
If you could define your life by the enthusiasm you could fire up from the first 3-chords of “Start Me Up” by the Rolling Stones, that was Dorothy. She had an infectious joy, an overwhelming compassion, relentless kindness, and a dance move that was, well, unique to say the least. Her zest for the moment was a spirit that impacted every single person that she knew.
Her determination through this year knew no end. She made it to the wedding date of her son before giving in to the pancreactic cancer that took her. This photos captures the essence of her soul and her purpose in life.
It’s pretty hard to define someone who lived such a life. Rest in peace, Dot.
