Dorothy has been a lady to be admired. I remember when she was the National Spelling Champion, and I feel richer for having known her. You have my sympathy. She is in a better place. Virginia Guck
Dear Kathy and Marian,
You have my deepest sympathy at this very sad time. Your mother was so very kind to my mother when they shared a life at Bickford. Mom and I both enjoyed your mother's friendship and were we very grateful for her kindness. You are but a few months behind me on a very difficult path. If I can help in any way, I would be pleased to do so. I will be thinking about you and remembering all of you Friday. Kris
