Dear HeightFamily: Please accept my condolences for the passing of Dorothy. I know how difficult this time is for your family because I loss my brother and other family members as well. Many people deal with the loss of a loved one in various ways, but for many the overriding feeling is one of intense emotional pain. The pain, the grief and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God’s word the bible for comfort. Reading 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 can give your family comfort knowing that "the God of all comfort" will give your family the strength and courage to cope with the loss. I hope your family is surrounded by good friends and pleasant memories you have of Dorothy. Please accept what little comfort these words can give. Warm Regards,

May God continue to embrace the family and we embrace her memory.

I have memeories that will never leave my heart and mind about the 3 years I worked for NCNW under Dr. Height. I had the honor of driving her to and from the VA office on many days and during those times, I had the remarkable experience of listening to her recall many things about her life that were both amusing and historic. What a privilege and a blessing!! It is only fitting that she be eulogized by President Obama while flags in this country are lowered to acknowledge our loss and mourning of this great woman!!She gave her all for the good of man and womankind! God bless her!!

May God continue to bless you and Dr. Heights as her work may live on .

Dorothy has been an inspiration to so many of us in the women's movement and in the movement for equality for all women that her passing will leave a big void. As a mentor and collaborator she was always patient and giving. Her universality allowed women in many foreign countries to also take up the causes of equality, development and human rights. I feel privileged that as a former President of the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women and as Co-Chair of the National Commission for Women we shared values and strategies for the advancement of women. What an exemplary life you led, Dorothy!
