Very sorry to hear of the Passing of Dorothy (Dottie) to me. I am sue you don`t know who I am or at least not remember me . I am Don & Edith McNamara oldest daughter. When I was a young girl many many years ago I stay with Dottie in Rome and then also with her and when you all lived in Camden up on the hill. I had many Laughs with her and good times. I am sure that their was a great reunion with all the family who preceded her in heaven. I will pray for Gods comfort for her family. God Bless.

Lorraine, Or Rain in the face as Aunt Mary
always called me.
