It is difficult to imagine a world without Dimple in it. I attended St. John’s with she and Larry and continued until she left Greenwood to be closer to family. Dimple lived in a small community where neighbors were more like family. Dimple was especially loved by those in that small 2 street community. John Looney, who had some challenges listed Dimple on his contacts when he would need help and she even trimmed his hair!. Always fondest of memories will follow Dimple in thoughts by all who knew her.
