I have very fond memories of my Aunt Dorothy throughout the years. I remember her visits to St Louis in the 70's and 80's. She was always so kind with a pleasant smile. It was very obvious that she didn't lose that signature smile and kindness when I visited her in Fort Myers a few years ago. She took me sightseeing one day. I have a picture of her and I standing on Ft. Myers Beach. We were the only ones there on a cloudy day. But she always brought out the sunshine with her warmth and funny stories. She always had a kind word to say about my Mom. She loved her family, and her family loved her. We miss you. They are all together in Heaven.

I'll always remember visiting Oma and Opa in Pensacola and Waynesville. I have very fond childhood memories of visiting her in the summers. Miss you, Oma!

Aunt Dorothy was the most gracious hostess! She always had a quick wit, humor, or kind word to say. I have such fond memories of her, including when she welcomed my new husband and i into her home, way back in 1992. There was always food, libations, and lots of love and laughter! Rest in peace dearest Aunt Dorothy!
