Although my sisters have all had fine godparents, I have always considered myself the luckiest because Aunt Dorothy was mine. In her own quiet way, she has influenced the way I try to parent and interact with others.

Aunt Dorothy was kind, cheerful, and accepting. When we would go visit, she always made you feel extremely welcome. She kept a home in which visitors never went hungry for food, something to do, or friendly conversation.

Aunt Dorothy demonstrated how to live a good life even when life presented difficulties. The older I get, the more I appreciate that quiet patience and generosity.

I have used my memories of her style as a mother as I raised my own children. She did not teach me to count to 10, she demonstrated it on those weekends when us kids were running in and out of the backdoor while the grown ups were arguing at her kitchen table. I could not have raised three boys without her. I am not surprised that Dorothy knitted afghans for the Christ Child Society. She would have been combining her love of children with her love of giving to others. It just makes sense.

To Jimmy, Tommy, Billy, Susan, Charlie, and all your children … I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there to share these thoughts in person and just help out. I am hoping my words will comfort you with the knowledge that your mom was a gift to all the people she touched and as such, she has a very special place in my heart.
