  1. Dearest ones. My Aunt “Dorothy” as I called her was very precious to me. She was like a second mother through the years. She lived a wonderful life and will be greatly missed. I have great memories of our times together, particularly in our younger years. Hugs and love. Delores (Harman) and Earl Shortridge
