Oh my gosh, I just was looking at a friends in here and noticed Dolly.
I have so many wonderful memories of this wonderful woman.
When I was younger I remember the great times we all had staying over at her house in Pierce. Memories I will never forget.
One for sure, it was pretty cold and we were all in the basement and turned on the electric blanket and being kids we neglected to turn it off. It caught fire and did some damage. Dolly never did give us very much of a hard time at all.
Dolly you will be missed I am very sure. Please say hello to my mom. I'm sure you will both have tons to chat about.
