Dorothy was my favorite North 7th Street neighbor while growing up. I have so many great memories of her and she was always so good to me and my family. I will always remember the nightly card games, rides to school with her, playing with Cheryl and Kim, the time she called in sick for me in high school so I could go prom dress shopping out of town, the way she won all of those radio call in games, and so many other things. Rest In Peace, dear Dorothy. My love to Kim and her family.
