Dorothy and I grew up together on South Savage Street in Independence, MO. I have many happy memories of playing together, participating together in Skylarks and Orioles, and attending Eden Heights church. She was a lovely woman who grew more beautiful as the years passed. My condolences to her family. She will be remembered with smiles. Gloria Bain Crull
