    Dear Norman and Family,
    Many warm thoughts and wishes to you during this difficult time. We were fortunate to visit with Aunt Dorothy a few times over the past few years during visits to Indiana to see Grandma Beaver and attend her funeral. Aunt Dorothy was always such a happy and sweet person, and she could easily brighten the day of anyone. She will be missed, but our fond memories of her will always remain. Love, Heath and Mindy
