Condolence & Memory Journal

Aunt Dorothy was always nothing but sweet to me. She's there in all of my childhood holiday memories. It meant a lot to me that she came out for our wedding even though she was not feeling well. I think it was her stock of RC Cola that helped stimulate my life-long habit of trying things off of the beaten path. Miss you.

Uncle Doug and Cousin Susan - she has a place in our hearts, as do the both of you. We will continue to check in. Love you.
