we wish to send our condolences on the death of your mom. Dorothy is nearly the last of
this generation of Apols to pass into eternity. While we mourn your loss with you, we celebrate her eternal gain.
I remember Aunt Dorothy’s hospitality the many times we visited for extended family get-togethers at their home,
We hope her passing brings to light many stories you did not know of Dorothy’s faith, hope, and love, expressed quietly through the years.
“Blessed are those who die in the Lord; they rest from their labors, and their works follow after them.”

So sorry to hear about Aunt Dorothy. I can remember when she, Uncle John, Cheryl and Connie came to eastern Washington to visit me on the farm in the early 70s. We had a great time! And then some years later she and Uncle John showed up at our wedding in Texas! That was such a nice surprise. Great memories. Love to you all.
