At the age of 65, Dorothy Alison announced she would not live to see 75. In 1999, four weeks before her 75th birthday, she died of heart failure. When Dorothy was 14, she had a vision of her father’s death. He died of pneumonia a few weeks later. Neighbors thought she was a witch. Her mother knew better. She told her daughter she had a special gift. One she should use for good and never for profit.
