So sorry to hear about Dode! She sure enjoyed life! Loved talking to her whether it was while walking at the mall, on the Sacred Heart Indian's Trips, or seeing her at the various dinners. She will be missed!

Dorothy was a wonderful lady. I can remember being out at her house countless times with Mchele as kids. She will be missed and remembered so much by so many. My prayers are with the whole family.

Grandma sleepyhead is responsible for the feisty and mischievousness that we all have in this family. I hope one day I can pull off the straw trick just as good as she did. She is loved by everyone and will be missed dearly. Heaven is lucky to have gained an angel like her.
