Dorothy was a sweet lady. I worked with her at the Christmas Store in CF, Iowa in the middle 90's. She worked hard and was a lot of fun. I also knew her husband, Bob, as I worked at Sun Oil Company. They were the sweetest couple. I am sorry to hear of her passing. She loved her family.
Not to be forgotten her Horse Diamond ! May they be running together! We spent my a good time together!
So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother.
Love and prayers to you all. Dorothy and I always had so much fun talking about our lifes and family. She always kept me up to date on you all when she came in the store. John and Aunt Dorothy shared the same birthday and he was always so happy about that. I am so sorry for your loss. Love, Bizz
