Dear Sammy, Barbara and Christopher, I’m so sorry to hear about Dot. I have so many great memories I could fill this entire wall. Gigi comes to mind first. Dot and my mother getting drunk in the pool on Hi-balls that Sammy and my father made (that had no whiskey. Dot making me a birthday cake every year until my 18th. My heart just broke a little.

Hi Pat - thanks for reminding me and my dad about some of the fun we had growing up. He and I actually laughed about this today, so you made our day a little brighter. Maybe they're all up in heaven drinking now ….. Take care, Barb
