What can I say about my aunt Dorothy she has been the focal point of my life for the past several years. We talked on the phone at least 3 times a week and I went to visit her nearly every Sunday for the past 8 months. Who's going to tell me what to do now. I already miss you it made me happy making you happy. I enjoyed taking you to the concerts, taking you to Bastrop, taking you out to eat and just being with you. My life is better having had you as my aunt and you'll live forever in my heart. Rest in peace sweet lady.
