    Craig, Wendy, Grant, Robin, Kyle and families,
    Our hearts ache along with yours as you grieve the loss of your mother and grandmother, Dorothy. From the very first day that she came into our lives in 1967 we have had a great friendship and we will miss her tremendously. It was so nice to have her as a “second mom” when I moved in with the family as a tenant until I met Gary. May all of your warm memories of Dorothy wrap tightly around your hearts and help you through the days ahead. Keep in touch.
