    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember Dorothy and Robert being at our home on many occasions, especially my parents’ (Carl & Iris Youngren) Boxing Day open house. They were good friends and enjoyed many good times together. May they all be at peace.

    I have so many fond memories of my time passed in your family home where the feeling of family love was so strong. I had to be there to learn what that kind of family was like. I learned so much from being there and from the wise council of Dorothy and I send you all the kind and loving feelings and support that I felt from your mother at that time. I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation.
