I used to work with Dorothy & Paul at Bourns years ago. She was a fun person to work with.

Discovered last night that Aunt Dorothy had passed away. I was always so fond of her. She was the sweetest, best aunt a niece could have. Her smile and laughter were contagious!

Enjoyed sitting by Dorothy in church at Bethesda Lutheran when she was able to come. We had a lot of nice chats.
