My Aunt Dorothy was my godmother. She enriched my life and taught me the meaning of grace. My Mother was her best friend and sister. Her kindness, her beautiful smile and sea blue Swedish eyes have been a constant in my life for 59 years. She was a constant in my life since the day I was born and her beautiful spirit will be in my heart and soul forever. Jan and Dave you more than anyone on earth know how much love I have for you and how sad I am for your loss. Love, Lisa
