Dear Sherry and Scott,

We so enjoyed our visits with Aunt Dora during family get-together's. I will forever treasure the times she spent sharing family history with me. I learned so much from her and we will all miss her presence. Please take comfort in the love she had for you as I'm sure she will be keeping a close watch over you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
