Aunt Dorothy was very good to me when I was a child and I am glad that I was able to share this with you Ron last month. Also, I graduated from Felician Academy in 1957. Diane, I still remember you visiting us with your mother in Sault Ste Marie when we lived there. My prayers are for all of Aunt Dorothy's family to be at peace knowing that she is with God now. May God bless you all. Love, Joan Dreger
