My condolences to my cousin Bill and his family. I am sure that mom and grandma will be missed. I can remember a trip to Crooked Lake in Indiana long before Bill was born, with Dorothy, my Uncle Don and my parents. I am sure that we had a great time, if I could remember something like that for 67 years or so. She was a terrific aunt to me. Although I hadn’t seen her in over 20 years, I still thought abut her. God bless.
