Dorothy and I were good friends. I was not able to go see Dorothy so I will remember when we were friends in the past. Roger and I have an other obligation so we will not be able to attend the funeral. I was surprised it was so far away from our church as our members are the age they can't get to the service. She was the last living original member of the Shawnee Presbyterian Church. I know all her family are buried in Kansas City, Ks. I will miss her.

Aunt Dorothy was always there when you needed her. I remember when my daughter Theresa was in St. Luke's Hospital she came and spent a afternoon with us. She was a great comfort . You know that she cared about the family. I just have loving memories of Aunt Dorothy.
