I remember meeting Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Carl for the first time at Gma and Bunks' home. They were some of the sweetest, kindest people I had ever met. I remember, Aunt Dorothy's southern accent. I loved it! She was a beautiful, southern lady to the core. I remember sitting and watching her interact with Uncle Carl and seeing how in love they still were after so many years. A simple pat on the shoulder or a touch of their hands. Aunt Dorothy will be sorely missed here on Earth. I am glad that she is Home with Uncle Carl and those who have gone before her. What a reunion they're having. Thinking of all of you and praying for comfort and peace. Much love, Michelle
