Growing up in Hooper, I loved it when your family would be at Grandma & Grandpa Jones' house when we went there. I also remember my parents taking us to visit you when you lived on Cross Street, and they brought Grandpa Jones to visit you in Chandler many years ago, after Grandma died. Aunt Dorothy was a beautiful lady and I always admired her. I hope her children and grandchildren will find much comfort in good memories, the love and support of family and friends, and the knowledge that this life is not the end.
