Not sure what to say?

Dorthy was my grandmother's (Ione Rice) best friend. When I traveled to New Zealand over 2o years ago, I stopped to visit Dorthy and she treated me and my friends as if we were family. Such a lovely soul.

As a Child she was the exotic Aunt who came whit tales of travels to far away places, as an adult she was the Family Legend and glue that held our extended Family together. Safe travels on your next Journey Dorothy.
