So sad that our world just lost such an amazing person. Aunt Dorothy would light up any room that she walked into. I don’t think I ever saw her without the biggest smile on her face. I know Unlce Ed and Grandma and Grandpa Beer were waiting in heaven for her with a pitcher of sun tea and a deck of cards. You will be missed dearly Aunt Dorothy. My prayers and thoughts go out to the entire Younger family during these times!

Aunt Dorothy always had such an elegant way about her. I have such fond memories of her smile and the way she and my mom would laugh when they were together. I can only imagine the polka dancing that is taking place to celebrate her homecoming. My thoughts and prayers are with my cousins Tami, Lonnie, LeRoy, and Leon, and their families.
