Dear Gary and the rest of the Sampson family.
So sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. I knew your parents for as long as I can remember and Dorothy was like a second mom. She always saw the bright side of things. With these strange times, I cannot be there to express my sense of loss and condolences in person.
