Dear Betty and Stan:
Just saw "In Loving Memory" of Dorothy in the Ashcroft Journal. We send condolences to your and your family. I still remember the beautiful pictures you showed me of Dorothy and her daughters celebrating her special birthday.
May all the special memories of times together help with your loss.
