Sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. She was a devoted wife and mother. I haven't seen her in many years but have great memories of "5 ft 2" as she and Bill danced.

I am so sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. I was so happy to get to meet her a few years ago when we were on family trip out west. She was so much fun to listen to her stories about her life and attitudes on getting up and telling her legs to get moving. My thoughts and prayers with all of you.
