I am so very sorry for the loss of Dora. She was a special lady. The last visit we had was in the office of the furniture store where she was keeping books. My mother, Evelyne, enjoyed playing bridge with her. How blessed you were to have had her in your lives. You brought her much joy, and she was very proud of all of you. May memories of the good times you shared bring you peace and comfort. Michelle Wonn Walter, 1967classmate of Mike and Kate
