I have such fond memories of Dorothy and Charlie. I used to go over to their Belleville lake house with mom and dad. As a child, I was forced to attend a New Years Eve party one year at their house, with all the ‘old people ’. I inherited lots of the Dorothy, Charlie, Bob, and Viv with mom and dad pictures. Dorothy was mom’s best friend for so many many years. Mom always told me when she received a new letter from Dorothy. Now they are all together once again.
