    Dolly, We along with many others will remember you for the great success you attained in your professional endeavors. We will remember you even more for being the person you were and most of all for being a wonderful friend. — We can never forget the fun we shared and the problems we solved on our many trips, the laughs we shared over coffee at Aribica’s, our many Friday night dinners, and coffee with kaluah. You were a special person in our lives and your family was lucky to have you as Mother and Grandmother. Our love and prayers go out to each of them.
    We know the food service will become a lot better in heaven now that you are there!
