My sister Fran and I met and visited with Dorothy in 2009. She was our late Father's cousin. She actually visited my Uncle's home in Medford OR on the day of Uncle Don's funeral.
When we met, she gazed into our faces and cried because she could see our Father's faces. When we looked in her face, we could see our Father's eyes and the similarity between her face and Father's face.
Walter and Flossie McKay, with their children - Clarence, Kenneth, and DorothyWhat a dear, sweet, strong, and lovely woman Dorothy was. May you rest with the angels and in the arms of our loved ones who have passed on.
