I first met Dorothy and Esther when we were attending Tobin Business College and that was the beginning of a 54 year friendship. From trips for the color guard she was a member of to the hilarious week long vacation the 3 of us took to Minneapolis State Fair, which turned into a short detour into Wisconsin (neither of the ladies were good at directions and I was dealing with traffic) to the Amana Colonies where we were carded every time we were given a sample of wine (we really laughed over that as none of us had been carded before). I'll miss the long letters, computer emails and the long phone calls we enjoyed. You'll be greatly missed my friend. Until we meet again. Farewell sister of my heart.
