    Paul and I always loved visiting Aunt Dorothy in Missouri and Florida. We enjoyed playing cards, golf, eating out, Bass Pro Shop, Shopping at the mall, going to Branson and many other things. There was never a dull moment when we were with her. She was always cheerful and happy. She loved her chocolate after a meal. We would send her mini hershey bars and she loved it. She is truly missed but I am sure she is happy to be with Uncle Bill and my mom.

    Paul and I really loved visiting Aunt Dorothy in Missouri and Florida. We enjoyed playing cards, golf, eating out, going to Bass Pro Shops and shopping at the mall. Aunt Dorothy LOVED to shop. We went to Branson several times, took her to the Precious Moments Museum, Pythian Castle and many other places. We always had a great time with her. She is truly missed.
