Dinner at Aunt Dorothy & Uncle Don’s always meant family time around the big table with the mantle clock to chime the hour. Aunt Dorothy having prepared a delicious meal. Miss them both but happy they are reunited. Hugs to all my cousins & all their families who have lost a wonderful mom, grandma & great grandma. She lives on in all of you.
