So sorry to hear about your Mom. My mom just let me know and she emailed me this message about your mother...I knew her when she was growing up and lived behind Flavorite Bake Shop. Your mom made the best chocolate chip cookies for us all to eat when you had friends over!
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Jill Vascil With

Dolly was a wonderful friend and neighbor. I loved her sunny outlook. Her upbeat personality could buoy anyone's spirits. It of course didn't hurt that she shared my love for dogs! She is gone much too soon. I hope that her family and friends find comfort in their memories of her kindness. My best wishes to you all in this difficult time. Jerry, if you need anything, I'm just across the fence.
