Dear Cousins,
So many fond memories of you all and Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Jim....snow forts and ballgames in the front yard on Spring Mill, climbing your apple trees, riding bikes down the ravine in the back . Aunt Dorothy always made me feel welcome. May she Rest In Peace.
With love,

Dorothy had a presence about her, one of class. I have soo many wonderful memories of her.
She taught me about flowers, how to plan for hosting large groups, to cooking some of her classics. The list could go on and on. But most importantly she was good to my kids. She and Jim came to everything they could when the kids were little.
Enjoy your popcorn and drink with Jim now Dorothy you've earned it.
