The Dorothy Llamas Memorial Chapel was dedicated at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles' thrift store in Los Angeles, June 21, 2013. Reverend Pedro Villarroya C.M. officiated. Store employees remembered Llamas, a former store director, as someone firm and kind, and always interested in others. Llamas was active in all levels of the Society, as a Vincentian, council president, district council president and regional historian. "She loved people," said her daughter Rosemary Sudduth, who was present. "She felt everyone was meaningful to God and meaningful to her." Sudduth said a Llamas family chapel is in Providence, Rhode Island, where prayers returned family safe from World War II. Sudduth is happy to know her family now has another chapel: "We are a praying family. Our family believes in prayer and that prayer changes things." Sudduth said prayers to God in her mother's chapel at the thrift store will certainly have Llamas' prayers in heaven. "She will be fighting on your behalf!"
