    As far back as I can remember my parents and I would go visiting Don and Dorothy. They always had a farm and I loved going there and seeing the animals and Dorothy ALWAYS had something yummy on the table for us to eat. She made the best deserts. And insisted we eat them. She always had a smile on her face. She will be greatly missed.

    I enjoyed the many conversations we had and loved how she always had a smile on her face. She was the best baker ever and always gave you her homemade goodies when you visited. I will miss our many conversations on the phone. She will definitely be missed. ?
