My mom and I are reflecting and wanted to share a story or two about our beloved Aunt Dorothy.
When my mom and dad were first engaged they enjoyed going dancing with Dorothy, Harry and sister (my grandmother) Marie and Bill. What fun times.
When mom asked Michelle to be their flower girl Aunt Dorothy asked if it would be ok to use her Easter dress and put a purple sash on it. Mom said of course, and Michelle was such a doll.
Then when I was born Dorothy and Harry came to our house and brought me a teddy bear rocker. They were so tickled.
I remember going over to Aunt Dorothy’s house in Garland and playing in the back yard while she gardened.
Such a lovely and kind human being. She will be missed.
