I’m so sorry for your mothers passing. I remember such great memories playing at the house on Pioneer and all the wonderful times. Praying for your peace in this time of grieving.

I worked with Dorothy at Terrace Fashions. She was always such a fashionable and vibrant lady. She had her own style. Several times after Owen’s death she had the crew from the store to her house for dinner. There will never be anyone I know that could make baklava like Dorothy. We shared many good times!
