To Dorothy’s family: Your mother was a beautiful woman, kind and good-natured. I remember so well her amazing garden every summer, when most of the neighbors were only planting petunias and marigolds! And I remember he kindness to my mother, Louise Casey, after my father died. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you say goodbye to a woman who lived her life very well.

Thank you, Mom for a lifetime of constant support, love, and wisdom. You have shaped me into a strong and compassionate woman. I continue to strive to be as gentle and kind and forgiving as you are. Your words help me to guide Joe and Kelly on their life walk. I love you Mom. Say hi to Dad.

Grandma, of the days I would spend at your home, my favorites were waking up in the morning and running to the kitchen were you made the most perfect over easy eggs for me, it may have been the pan you used but mostly it was because YOU made them, I also loved our chocolate easter egg you gave us every year from Sayklly’s, walking through your garden to see your lady slippers. I love you grandma, I wish we could have lived closer, but you were still always there for me, you loved me through my worst, say Hi to grandpa for me. I miss you grandma. xoxo
