    I remember Dorothea as a very sweet lady. She and Virgil were always so good to all the kids that came into their store. They were really good people. We need more like them.

    Best wishes to you all at this time.
    Her and Virgil were a big part of mine and especially my parents' life.
    I remember kindness and compassion
    when I think of this fine lady.
