Dorothy, my sister who took on the roll of Mother when our MOTHER passed away when I was just a teenager. The rest of her life was sent becoming a mother herself to four strong young men who gave her six grandchildren. Dorothy loved her family and was so proud of all of them.

Our hearts go out to my cousins and their families this week. When I think out Aunt Dorothy it is the Pure ❤️ Of her boys and her grand children. She always talked about each of them and how proud she was. When we were together, so wondered why we didn’t do it more often. Her love of family, music and the beach will be part of her memories. She kept family together and strong since she was a teen. love you Aunt Dorothy and may you be at peace and singing with your parents and sister in Heaven.

So sorry for your loss. Aunt Dorothy will live on in our memories. A few weeks ago I was telling a friend about the "taxi" song she taught me as a little girl, I even sang the lyrics, as that happens her spirit is with us. Love, Stacey
