I just now found out about the passing of Aunt Dorothy, and wish to send my belated condolences to Sam and Marc and their families. She was a wonderful person and I remember fondly the times we visited the family farm in Pendleton with my parents, my sister, Randi, and my brother Rob.

May God remind you of all the wonderful times you had as a family, growing up! God Bless you all.

Dan and Deb (Jones) Holdren, Valparaiso, IN
