Love the picture of Aunt Dorlyn. She was always so kind and encouraging to all of our family. We didn't have a lot of memories (because of the distance), but all very pleasant. Dorlyn and Lynn will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love you all and are blessed to call you family. Joe & Judy Brummer and family
