Billie Jean, Yes, BJR--a constant visitor to your sweet home during our SFA days. I know the void is huge. That's a successful life if the absence is huge to a loving family. Hugs to you and condolences to all the family.

I went all the way through school with Dorothy and graduated with her in 1949 from Stephen F. Austin High School. I haven't even seen her since then, I don't believe. I have very sweet and pleasant memories of Dorothy, especially in high school. I was so disappointed that she didn't come to any of the reunions that I attended from Oklahoma. I remember her sister well too, Billie
Jean Hearne. I pray for God's blessings of comfort and peace for all of Dorothy's family. Lots of Love in Christ, Irene Jones Simmons
