Aunt Dorothy, I will miss you. I remember when I got to stay with you. It was really fun. Last year it was so neat that you had your 100th birthday--in fact not long after that Mom told her doctor that she was gonna make 102 since her big sister had made 100! I am glad you had at least one more year! Philip, my heart goes out to you. It is so hard to give up the ones we love. I am glad you & Aunt Dorothy had your years together in Texas. XO
