  1. Dear Aunt Dora going to miss you so much. I remember the fun times we have had together the Thanksgivings and Christmas and the deviled eggs because you knew how much Dallas love them. Wish you could have stayed with us longer but you were called home. I will miss you Dodo. With our love forever. Dallas and Ann

  2. I had the pleasure to meet Dora over the last 15 years of her life. my recollection is of a sprite women who lived on coffee, could climb stairs and loved her family. I found her delightful in all ways. Carol is my stepmother and the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. I’m sorry for all of the family’s loss – but as an outsider – I bet she knows she did a great job in life and was loved. this is the type of woman I read about in history and love.
