Condolences

So sorry for your loss. Although I didn't know Dorothy, I had heard my parents and grandparents mention her. My great-grandmother, Helena Ackerman Totten, was Dorthy's aunt. (Harry Ackerman's sister) I have a picture that was taken at Dorothy's grandparents' (Frank and Linda Ackerman's)50th anniversary. It's not dated, but my Mom was born in 1934 and she looks to be around 3-4 years old. So it must have been from the late 1930s. If you are interested in seeing it, you can contact me at Lspade@neo.rr.com. Again, sorry for your loss.

I remember my cousin being cheerful and always having a positive outlook. I cherish the memories of the family on south beer st. I want express my sympathy to you in this time. My God comfort you. I am the son of Wiles and Clara Shelly.

To Sue and Barbara, and your families. We are sorry that we are not able to see you, but want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. Dorothy was always so cheerful and positive, whenever we were able to visit with her, and we will always have fond memories of her and the girls from our younger days. May God comfort you with His love.

Sue and family, I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing! I really didn't remember her till I saw her picture, you and I played together some of the time when we were kids long time ago! I just lost my soul mate on April 9, we had lived together for 32 years. You all have my deepest sympathy! Myrtle Reynolds
