    Don and Bill

    We are saddened to hear of Aunt Dorothy’s death. We tried several times to make a connection with her so her sister-in-law, Thelma Heath could talk with her. We tried last February on the birthday she shared with Wes, at the last known phone number we had and while Thelma spoke with someone, she was unable to make her understand. I would like to believe she was speaking with her for that last time.

    I know Thelma would love to hear from either of you. Please get in touch. We are getting together tomorrow for Heath Christmas and I will tell her then about your mother.

    Shirley and Roger Heath
