So sorry for the loss of our old neighbor - Dory - I would put Christmas lights in my trees and she could see them from where she sat in the evening and the year I decided not to put them up she told me how much she missed them - so sorry for your loss of a very nice lady

Aunt Dory was my loving Godmother. I will always remember her tender smile and her laughter.
She was truly a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers are especially with Mike and Larry, hoping they find peace in the cherished memories of their mom.
I will miss my Aunt Dory. I will never forget Dory and Bob Willis were engaged at my wedding in 1973. We always shared that story when ever we saw each other. She was a fantastic, fun lady....always upbeat and with a great sense of humor. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as you say good-bye.
