Dear Keith, Georganne, Cameron, Corinne and family: We are sending each of you our deepest and most heartfelt sympathy, love and prayers. Dolly was both a gifted and talented Counselor and colleague. Best friend in the world. IJ and Dolly are deeply missed. Whether IJ or John were running for an office or we were traveling we had the best time together. Gwen will never forget the pool party Dolly and IJ gave her for her high school graduation. I J took Gwen and John to Leads GM to purchase her first J car and ate club sandwiches in the executive lounge. Dolly had impeccable taste in everything. She loved shopping. Dolly introduced Gwen to a Cobb Salad. When Dolly asked if Gwen liked the salad. She replied, “Yes, everything but the green stuff. “ Years later Gwen cannot eat an avocado without thinking of Dolly. Dolly loved travel and planning every detail of every trip. Always finding somewhere new and unique to see in the world. We absolutely loved our trips to the casinos and to the beach. We enjoyed all of our cruises especially Panama Canal. We loved our trips to New York. We always enjoyed visiting each other no matter where we lived. Dolly was my best friend. She will never be forgotten and live on our memories. Thank You Keith for keeping us updated on Dolly. We always thought we would visit one more time. Sending each of you our love, sympathy, prayers and hugs! Love, Cathy Freytag, Brian, Gwen and Kera Zumalt
