"Aunt Dorothy and my Uncle Ricky have been my life forever. After Ww2 they gave me my first 7th birthday gift a bow and arrow! My father and my brother Bill would go to there house on Green End Ave Christmas eve sing and exchange gifts. Years past and I always knew when I had to start mailing Christmas cards. Aunt Dorothy's card would be my first. She was a great Aunt and I will miss her!"
