My Story

Well where do I begin? She was my adopted MOM. My Mom died when I was 23 years old. When I met Dorothy, I was 25(1976) I was dating her son. We hit it off right from the start. I guess we had a lot in common. Both are parents had died at an early age. I was just drawn to her like a moth to a flame. She was so very cool. I had 2 sons  and I was divorced twice. She was just an amazing woman. There was nothing she couldn't do or wouldn't try to do. She painted, she wall papered.She loved to do arts and crafts and was very good at it. She really had a talent for it. I have many things she made for me and my boys. She was a real artist. She passed away the Thursday after Mother's Day of 2007. So the one year anniversay is coming up. I miss her alot.
She lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I now live in North Carolina. I left Milwaukee in 1981. I went overseas with my husband. ( It didn't work out with her son but I had known her for so many years and we were close) When I came back from overseas, we went to North Carolina as my husband was in the Army. We remained close after I returned. I didn't get to see her much but we called each other on the phone and would talk for hours. Just catching up on family and what was going on in our lives. I did get to see her one last time in June,2005. I spent a couple of days with her and it was like I had never left. We had such a bond.
So I miss her very much. I think about her often and wish she was still around to talk to. She was always so kind and understanding and always made me feel better. I believe I did the same for her.
