Andrea, Susan, Richard, and Lisa - My sincerest sympathies to you all with the passing of Aunt Dallas. It definitely is a heavy loss. What a loving, kind, caring, sweet, and gentle person she was. Her laughter and those little kisses on the cheek were the best! Her wonderful personality always guaranteed a smile on my face whenever I was with her. Thinking of her now still does put a smile on me. I have nothing but fond memories of Aunt Dallas. She made life a better place back in the day. Love cousin George or Georgie as your mother called me.

The greatest baseball fan her grand sons ever had. Dallas was always in the front row with a beautiful smile on and enjoy all around her. What a precious little lady she was and such a tender spot in all our hearts.
