    As we all look back on the years we’ve shared with Aunt Lydia, I will always be thankful for her generosity. From the the wedding showers she hosted for me,( yes she hosted two!), always sending a ‘Thank you’ written by her, usually the next day after we had visited her, making us feel welcome in her home, and most of all to me, in the last 15 years since Dorothy’s passing, I always felt that as long as we had Aunt Lydia with us, a little bit of Dorothy was still with us. Missing her, but know that she is with the Lord she loved sharing eternal life with her dear family.

    Sorry to hear of Lydia’s passing. She lived a full and wonderful life. We will miss her newsy Christmas letter. We have been remembering all the times we combined our dinners when we lived next door. Also all the swimming she and I(Sally) did together. Great memories for sure. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    Although we never had the opportunity to meet your mom, she must have been a wonderful woman. She has passed that and her beauty down to you, Margie. We are very sorry for your loss.
