I have so many memories of Aunt Dorothy, particularly spending the summers with her, Roxanne and Billy. She had the best smile. When she worked at the ice cream factory, she brought home ice cream bars for us….and for me that was a huge treat. I remember when she flew into Grand Rapids, MI, and we went to pick her up. Even though she and my mom, Doris, her twin lived states away, they were dressed in the identical taupe suede coat with a mink collar and the same olive green drop earrings. Twins! I will think of her often. My prayers for all who loved her.
