You may be gone from this earthy place, but no doubt you are sitting at the right hand of God. An Angel just received her wings.

Sending my deepest sympathies to all.  I have so many fond memories at Aunt Dorothy’s farm swimming, playing with the animals, checking out Ellen, Martha & Be-Be’s cool bedrooms.  Even though I wasn’t a biological niece, she always treated as family. She was a sweetheart. RIP ❤️
