Sending sincere condolences on the passing of my dear childhood friend Dorothy. We had the greatest friendship when she was living in Redcliff as a young girl of about 12. I was actually friends with the family..and would visit their home often. I had visited Dorothy later in life when she lived on Aberdeen Street...as I do remember Blaine as a small boy. Wish we hadn't lost each other along the way through life, but we all grow away from our childhood experences...but do keep the memoreis alive. Thinking of you all at this very sorrowful time......do know I am so sorry to hear this sad news........
