    I was sorry to hear of Aunt Dorothy’s passing. Our family spent many happy hours playing with Marsha and Tommy in Willow River and Pine City as youngsters. In our more recent years we would see Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Gordon in Hinckley where we visited and shared a meal. Our sympathy to the family.
