Dorothy and family,

“I was so sad to learn of the loss of your grandson. Although I never had the opportunity to meet him, I know if he was anything like his grandmother, he was a warm wonderful individual.What a beautiful smile! I can't begin to imagine your pain and sorrow and I will keep all of you in my thoughts and my prayers.”
