With Deepest Sympathy to Diane, Vernon, their families, and all of her grandchildren. Aunt Dorothy was so special to everyone. I will never forget how kind & loving she was to our family. I have many childhood memories spending time at her house. There are so many memories from camping to driving to Tennessee and the list goes on. Home cooked meals & snapping green beans from her garden for dinner. She will never be forgotten. Love, Dana Cosgrove & family
