    Many fond memories of my aunt. Brian and Kayla caught their first fish on Stone Lake.

    Aunt Dorothy was a kind and vibrant woman – always the optimist with an easy smile and laugh, always the team player looking to involve anyone and everyone in whatever activity was going on. Dorothy was full of warmth and energy. She was easy to talk with. Living far away in Illinois we could always count on a birthday card from Dorothy.
