Dorothy has been a true friend of mine for many many years. She and her family lived right across the street from us on B Avenue. Very caring folks – I will miss her. Lots of cookouts, visiting back and forth, snowmobiling and playing cards. They loved our kids very much and that was returned in kind.

Deb, keep your chin up and remember we all love you and will be there for you if you need. Dorothy, you rest in peace.

So sorry about your Moms passing. I have so many wonderful

memories of my family and yours at Pine Lake all of those

summers ago. Your Mom and Dad were like my second family.

I will hold her in my heart forever. If you need anything I’m right on

AB Avenue and will help for whatever you need.

Brenda Page-Walker and Family

Debbie, so sorry for your loss. I didn’t learn of your mother’s passing until minutes before my mother’s passing. She was a special woman.
