May God comfort all the family of Helen (Dodo) Cloud. What a precious lady who lived life to it's fullest. My memories go back to family reunions when Bill was still living. My mother & dad (Frances & Louis Vaughn, Sr) dearly loved Bill & Dodo. I have memories from the later years @ reunions but my favorite was in January as we were returning from Orlando when we stopped & visited with Dodo & family. We will treasure that visit forever.
