Lets remember the smiling, the laughing, the talking,the sharing, the caring and the loving and all of the good times we shared with Dororty, she was the very BEST.
Uncle Frank, Denise, Charlie, Paul and Annie- While we have not been in contact for a while, Aunt Dorothy has always had a special place in my heart and always will. I am sure she is drinking coffee with Joyce, Clary and Jan in a place we can only dream about. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Jeff and Janice
