Dear Bryna, Bonnie and Terry
My thoughts are with each of you today. Though I am not in attendance, know that I will be with you all via the streaming of the service.
The bond that your mother and I shared was borne many decades ago from love as cousins and the special friendship we had. Though we were separated by the miles from coast to coast, our relationship never diminished.
I was very fortunate to have had your mother be such an important part of my life for so many years. I have missed and will continue to miss her.
Much love , Dorothy Ann
