You have my sympathy. We both moved here at about the same time and got to know each because we both had dogs. Adora was a good friend and I am going to miss her. Bill

I remember Dode coming to family gatherings at Mt Grandma Smiths farm. I still have a quilt (in new condition) that her mother, Aunt Ancie made when my son was born. My condolences to the family. Hugs 💕
