I am happy she lived a long happy life.
We were cousins but I never met her.
She was related through the Bonnell family from Haverhill. May she rest in peace.

We have so many memories with Aunt Dorothy from the farm & florist in Massachusetts to camp in Maine, running into her at Ball Room Dancing and the condo in Florida.
Her zest for life will be missed.
