Dolly, my sissy...You fought a long hard fight, a journey that ended in peace. July 15th, Mom's Birthday, I asked her to guide you home and as a loving mother she did just that.
I will always remember the many vacation trips, not only as a young girl but as an adult when you would travel with Bob and me to Florida, Atlantic City and Poughkeepsie to see where Mom grew up. I will always cherish your weekend visits to the lake with UNC; you both loved it here at our home.
Though we were almost 20 years apart in age, we shared a bond that could never be broken. We were "kin" and could always count on each other to be there for each other.
I will miss you terribly Doll. Hug all our family who is waiting for you with open arms, until we meet again. Love, Linda and Bob
