Grandma Dorothy was the epitome of a true lady. When I was little I remember wanting a compact with powder in it to put in my purse just because Grandma always had one. For my sister and I, she wasn't the typical grandma you saw all the time. She was closer to our cousin, who was Dorothy's daughter's daughter. I regret not being closer to her. As I grew to be an adult I would drive over to her apartment in Troy to visit, but not nearly enough. I will never forget you, Grandma Dorothy!
